Who were we?Midhurst Music Society (MMS) had been providing the Midhurst area of West Sussex with live Choral concerts for the past 56 years. Concerts may require orchestral accompaniment and include orchestral items. This support was provided by local semi-professional musicians and occasionally by other instrumental groups. MMS was directed by Mary Knight. What did we do?We performed classical choral works and part songs, in public concerts and smaller recitals, supported by other training and social activities. We also sent representatives to sing with the Petersfield Musical Festival, which gave us the opportunity to enjoy performing large choral works. We supported young musicians as they began their musical careers and we wanted to encourage the appreciation of and participation in choral music in the Midhurst area..
Farewell to MMSThe MMS Committee has, with great regret,decided to disband the Society.MMS was not able to recover from the effectsof Covid and from the increasing age ofits members. We thank all those who havefaithfully supported the Society for so manyyears and for the great music that we have enjoyed making together and for 56 years of service toMidhurst and other local communities.
