The rest of our 40th ANNIVERSARY YEAR CONCERTS
have now been cancelled because of the government's restrictions on movement and public gatherings during the Covid-19 crisis.
The Heywood Civic Centre is closed until further notice.
We hope that the situation will have improved sufficiently for the plans we have for a 2020-2021 Season to be carried out as envisaged by the Committee.
Details of these will be available shortly.
Meanwhile, we are very sorry that we shall not be able to enjoy what Patrick Hemmerlé and Raphaela Papadakis had in store for us in April and May. Maybe we shall have that pleasure at a later date.

From the Vice-Chairman 20.03.2020
Concert artists such as Rochdale Music Society engages for its events are usually self-employed musicians, who rely for their income on the fees they receive for their performances.
The members of the Society's Committee are conscious of this fact, and of the consequences to the artists of having their engagements cancelled, viz lack of income.
At the same time, the Society has its commitments to its Patrons, to the subscribing members of its audiences and to the other agencies and individuals involved in promoting concerts - piano tuners, for example.
So many people are being caught up at this moment in a situation full of negative knock-on effects! I would like to assure you that the Committee is seeking to deal properly with their responsibilities.
A further announcement about things will be made very soon. Meanwhile, I wish you enjoyable listening to music at home as we look forward to more live music-making as soon as possible..
