About Belfast Music Society

The Belfast Music Society was founded in 1921 to promote the performance and enjoyment of classical chamber music.

Initially a branch of the British Music Society, from 1921 to 1983 the society brought some of the most eminent musicians in Europe to entertain Belfast audiences. The name changed to Belfast Music Society in 1983.

The society’s programme of concerts has been one of the mainstays of Belfast’s musical and cultural life, providing access to an extensive repertoire of quality chamber music.
