This charitable organisation exists to provide the residents of, and visitors to, the Lake District access to classical music through a series of concerts and talks.
We have just completed our 38th season which offered another wonderful set of concerts for you and your friends to enjoy.
The 2013-14 season's brochure will be sent to our mailing list and published on the website in July. If you wish to be added to the mailing list please go to the Booking arrangements page.
We invite you to browse through the website - there is a great deal to tempt you. The 2012-2103 season contained a varied programme of concerts, performed by a range of orchestras - from the European Union Chamber Orchestra's small ensemble of 20 players to the Hallé, which had more than 80 players on stage. The conductors and soloists included some familiar faces, and also a number who were making their first visit to Kendal.
The Trustees have finalised the 2013-14 concert series, which will be announced at the Society's AGM on 19th June; they are also looking ahead to the 2014-15 season, which will be our 40th anniversary series. The three-year grant awarded to the Society last October by the Arts Council England through Grants for the Arts means that we can continue to present these concerts, and achieve the Society's aim to bring live classical music to audiences in Kendal.
