|Roseland Music Society|
Our aim is to bring affordable music concerts to the local community and promote education in this field.
A regular programme of concerts, which include nationally and internationally known performers, ensembles and choirs takes place at Portscatho Memorial Hall. The Roseland Music Society is affiliated to Making Music (National Federation of Music Societies) and has a membership currently approaching 150. The Society has also been selected by the Countess of Munster Musical Trust to take part in it's recital scheme, allowing us occasionally to present outstanding young artists at advantageous prices.
Membership, costing £8.00p, entitles one to a £3.00 reduction on each ticket purchased during the year and a periodic newsletter giving advance notice of forthcoming concerts. Students are admitted at a reduced price and any schoolchild of 16 and under when accompanied by a ticket holding adult will be admitted free of charge to all concerts. Whilst we are a society with members, our concerts are public. We warmly welcome non-members who account for a very significant proportion of our ticket sales.
Our concerts, normally starting at 7.30pm, are held on a Friday or Saturday evening. The seats are upholstered and comfortable. We provide a licensed bar offering the choice of specially selected wines, Betty Stogs beer and soft drinks. The bar is open prior to the concert and during the interval.
In the field of education Roseland Youth Music was started as a stand-alone branch of the society with the purpose of enabling exposure to high quality music presentation to local primary schools. This is undertaken by some of our visiting artists, presenting recitals and workshops.
We welcome new members and enquiries should be made to the Membership Secretary. Click HERE to view the 2012-2013 programme/membership form.
