Local Music

Information on local music events that may be of interest to our members or supporters. If you would like to add an event to this page then please let us know.

There are a growing number of live concerts planned in West Berkshire, South Oxford and Reading areas, we suggest you check beforehand that the concert is still being performed. At the request of choir members I include live drama and other theatrical events that they recommend. Below are those I have found for July and August – not so many events in August – I guess people are on holiday.

  • The Adderbury String Quartet, John Whittaker: Quartet with the movement ‘Effigies’ premiere performance, Mozart: Quartet in C, Dvorak, Quartet in F, Aldworth Church on 30th July 7pm, tickets in advance (from tel:01635- 578936) as there is limited capacity 
  • Echéa Quartet string quartets by Schubert, Haydn and Beethoven, St Mary-le-More Church, Wallingford on 30th July 2022 at 8:00 PM
  • The Band of Music, Bach, Handel, Janitsch and Telemann, St Mary-le-More Church, Wallingford on 20th August 2022 at 8:00 PM

We have found a number of useful on-line sites for both advertising Pangbourne Choral Society and finding interesting music concerts etc.

For local activities Whats On Reading is very helpful – this is our entry

Newbury and District Arts Association

This is another source for local concerts (mostly choirs) – but check with the choir that the event is still on

For classical concerts and opera performance throughout the UK Classical Events is very useful – we add our concerts when appropriate
