Music on Thursday – Autumn Schedule

Music on Thursdays, Leatherhead’s 12.30 lunchtime concert series, is moving from summer into Autumn. The intimate feel of Leatherhead Methodist Church suits these small-scale concerts well and is appreciated by both audience and performers. Ah, yes, the performers! Autumn brings the usual blend of students from the Royal Academy of Music – many of them completing their Masters of Music degree in Performance Studies. Then we have recent graduates of the RAM and London’s other music colleges, and there is no shortage of local talent of the same high professional standard.

There are also two organ concerts at Christ Church URC – although these are on Wednesdays, so do check dates in the list below.

The musical event turns social after each concert when the new team from Vecchia Trattoria are in the Churches selling sandwiches, cakes and drinks, providing a chance to linger and chat among ourselves and with the musicians.

Entry to these 35-45 minute concerts is free, with a retiring collection so we can cover costs.

Here’s the line up for the rest of this year:
