Newport Music Club promotes the appreciation of music through the presentation of public concerts that bring quality live music to the heart of Newport.
Professional artists introduce and perform from a classical and contemporary chamber music repertoire, bringing together both well and less known works and composers. Six concerts are held annually at small friendly venues in the heart of Newport in an informal and friendly atmosphere. Our artists not only entertain with well-known works, they also educate and inform with works that are seldom heard and that step outside the normal spectrum of work our members are used to hearing.
The club was originally created within Haberdasher Adams' Grammar School. In 1974 it became independent. It still retains its links with the school, and the Music Department.
Newport Music Club is a registered Charity that is run by volunteers who engage the professional musicians for the six concerts held annually. Support by members includes forming the management committee, artist and music selection, the provision of hospitality for both artists and audience, production and dissemination of publicity materials and articles for the local press - as well as all those other little jobs that makes the club run so smoothly.
We operate with a Constitution with governance through the Annual General Meeting at which all members are encouraged to express their views. Naturally, the club is always looking for new helpers and committee members in order to refresh and reinvigorate its encouragement of music in Newport. The Club has informal links with many other local music organisations, and positively encourages the sharing of programmes and experiences with which to enrich its offering in Newport.
The Club engages many artists through a network of support provided by major orchestras and organisations set up to promote particular musicians.
For the 2019/20 season we benefitted from generous donations from the Newport Music Coach that visits the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra at its base in the ICC Symphony Hall in Birmingham, together with ballet and shows at the Hippodrome and other venues.
Our second concert will be the last in the series Beethoven in Wales. This is supported by five arts funds. Not only will we hear the remaining Beethoven violin sonatas, but we will also be treated to a newly commissioned composition by Welsh composer Hilary Tann.
