'The British Music Society of York is not quite what the name might lead you to think. It is simply an organisation which, as its core activity, stages six chamber music concerts per year, its season running from October to March. For historical reasons, however, it still has more the structure of a music society: its subscribers are called members, and the Society's committee and officers are appointed at an AGM, held in May or June.'
