2015-16 marks the Golden Anniversary of Witney Music Society.
the summer of 1965 a small group of people in Witney, with the active
encouragement of the newly-expanded West Oxfordshire Technical College (now
Abingdon and Witney College), called a meeting at which there was overwhelming
support for establishing a Society in Witney dedicated to putting on regular
concerts by professional classical musicians. The result was the foundation of
the Witney Music Society. Its first concert, given by the Linden Singers, one of
the UK’s best known small choirs at that time, was on 19 November 1965.
A new website (work in progress) will appear here within a few weeks. The new website will be more user friendly and adaptable for access by mobile devices.
It will include details of the special concerts that we have arranged to celebrate Witney Music Society's Golden Anniversary Season.
Please keep checking here for when the new website goes live!

Witney Music Society is appreciative of the financial support and encouragement which it receives from West Oxfordshire District Council, Witney Town Council, from the advertisers in our brochure and for individual concerts, from Making Music and The Countess of Munster Musical Trust.
This, together with a flourishing membership, enables us to offer performances of a very high standard.
The Society has over the years also received grants from the Witney Educational Foundation, which allow us to arrange concerts for schools within the Witney area.
