MMS is a registered Charity. Registered Number 80233
Who are we?
Midhurst Music Society (MMS) has been providing the Midhurst area of West Sussex with live Choral concerts for the past
54 years. Concerts may require orchestral accompaniment and include orchestral items. This support is provided by local
semi-professional musicians and occasionally by other instrumental groups. MMS is directed by Mary Knight.
What do we do?
We perform classical choral works and part songs,in public concerts and smaller recitals, supported by other training and
social activities. We also send representatives to sing with the Petersfield Musical Festival, which give us the opportunity
to enjoy performing large choral works. We support young musicians as they begin their musical careers and we want to
encourage the appreciation of and participation in choral music in the Midhurst area.
How do I join?
We welcome new members to sing with us. You don’t have to be able to read music - we will show you how it’s done.
Just come and enjoy making music together. Contact our Chairman or Secretary or just come along to a rehearsal.
We meet on Monday evenings, from 7.30pm, usually in the Methodist Church Hall, North Street, Midhurst.
New singers are warmly invited to join the MMS choir this year as soon as the present lockdown
rules are relaxed and singing together in groups is allowed. We will begin the new session by
preparing for the Petersfield Musical Festival of 2022. Weekly rehearsals will be held in the
Methodist Church Hall, Midhurst on Monday evenings from 7.30 onwards.
New Singers do not have to read Music as full guidance will be given and you are assured of a
warm welcome. Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass or even “don’t know” singers will enjoy making music
Meanwhile - we are happy to support the Music Appreciation group of Midhurst U3A, which is
meeting monthly via Zoom. Contact MMS for details
The June meeting on Thursday 24th will explore the life and music of Shostakovitch

to our next session
