Roseland Music Society
Roseland Youth Music (RYM) is the educational branch of Roseland Music Society. It promotes musical activity among young people on the Roseland; provides professional musicians to work in local schools; enables students to experience live music of all types and see and hear a range of musical instruments being played, and offers them the opportunity to participate in practical workshops involving listening, composing, improvising, singing, playing and performing together. During the years since inception in 2004 in excess of 5500 pupils have benefitted.
(Registered Charity No: 1098140)
The idea of forming a society for the promotion of concerts and other musical events was first envisaged as a Millennium project in 1998. A small, determined group of classical music enthusiasts, inspired by John Beech MBE founding chairman, decided to proceed with the idea and a programme of events was formulated. The Roseland Music Society was born and is now a thriving charitable society and has a membership currently exceeding 100.
The aim is to promote affordable live music with a regular programme of concerts, which include nationally and internationally known artists, ensembles and choirs.
Membership, presently costing £10, entitles one to a £3.00 reduction on each ticket purchased during the year.
We welcome new members and enquiries should be made to the Membership Secretary (see Contacts page).
Whilst we are a society with members, our concerts are public. We warmly welcome non-members who account for a very significant proportion of our ticket sales.
Our concerts generally take place at Gerrans Parish Memorial Hall, Portscatho, normally starting at 7.30pm. They are held on a Friday or Saturday evening. Students are admitted at a reduced price, and any schoolchild of 16 and under when accompanied by a ticket-holding adult will be admitted free of charge. We provide a licensed bar offering the choice of specially selected wines, beers and soft drinks. The bar is open prior to the concert and during the interval.
