Founded in 1952 by Benjamin Britten, Aldeburgh Music Club is one of the leading choirs in East Anglia with over 80 voices. The Club performs regularly at Snape Maltings and other venues in Suffolk engaging professional orchestras and leading soloists. The Club celebrated its 60th anniversary year in 2012 and was a major contributor to the Britten centenary events in 2013.
Aldeburgh Music Club's repertoire includes a broad range of oratorio and religious music, opera, contemporary and commissioned works.
Please note that our next concert due to take place on Saturday 16 May at Orford Church has been cancelled as a consequence of the Government restrictions currently in place arising from the Covid-19 pandemic.
This was to have been the last concert when Edmond Fivet CBE, the Club's music director would have been conducting as he retires from this role following the concert. We would also have been marking the retirement of Jonathan Rutherford, the Club's distinguised accompanist. Once the restrictions are lifted we will find a suitable occasion to celebrate their successful tenures in these positions .
New members are always welcome, whether they be experienced singers or those keen to learn to sing well. No audition is required but members should have an acceptable tone, a good ear for pitch and enjoy the high standards of discipline and musicianship necessary for concert performances. To become a member, please contact us or complete the member's online form .
Aldeburgh Music Club regularly performs with the Prometheus Orchestra and the Suffolk Baroque Ensemble.
We would like to thank Suffolk Secrets for sponsoring our 2019/20 season.
