´The Club was founded nearly 70 years ago by Miss Gladys New who was a well-known singer in Andover. Not just the founder of the club, Gladys was also the Secretary for 46 years and the Treasurer for many years. "Her" Music Club has steadily developed, to become one of the best-supported in Southern England ... We present six concerts every season. The aim is to offer a wide range of music performed by professional artists.'
* Stockbridge Music New!
'Formed to bring top quality chamber music & recitals of all varieties to Stockbridge, inviting professional musicians to perform as well as high grade students seeking opportunities to perform in public and local musicians keen on furthering their careers.'
'The electronic organs and keyboards of today are capable of a great variety of sounds and styles - from military bands to orchestras, from violin to harmonica; in fact, the sounds of almost any instrument imaginable can be reproduced by these amazing pieces of electronic wizardry. The Society's concerts are aimed particularly at people who prefer their music to be melodious, easy listening and tuneful, and are guaranteed to provide enjoyable entertainment in a relaxed and friendly environment. A different top class performer is engaged for each monthly concert and the programmes are always balanced to suit most musical tastes ... Very few of its supporters admit to being able to play an instrument - they simply attend the concerts because they enjoy good music and entertainment.'
'Our line-up includes all the usual orchestral instruments, plus some band instruments such as saxophones which help to create our unique ALO sound. We play a variety of music: light classics, music from the shows, film music, folk songs and dances, extracts from the romantic classics, and many others ... We aim to to enjoy ourselves making music, practising instrument technique, and improving our musicianship and sight-reading by playing together with others.'
'So called because our main practice venue is the upper room of the Andover Museum of the Iron Age ... The choir sings in three or four part unaccompanied harmony in a style that borrows much from the “West Gallery” and other largely rural singing traditions such as that exemplified by the Copper family of West Sussex. Much of the repertoire is local and is arranged for unaccompanied voices by local musicians ... We perform at local events, seasonal festivities and our own concerts ...'
