About the group

The Music for Pleasure group has as its principle the enjoyment of familiar music or music that members may not know.

At each meeting, a member can volunteer to present a programme of music that they enjoy – classical, jazz, light music, or any other genre, with comment from the presenter and discussion of the music chosen. There is no obligation to do this, you can just listen and enjoy.

Some subjects of meetings earlier this year are listed below. Click on the name to see more details of the music played:
