About Luton Music

Luton Music has been providing the people of the town and surrounding area with a rich diet of small-scale classical music since 1946.

It has become one of the leading promoters of such concerts throughout the UK, attracting the admiration of performing musicians, composers, concert agents, other promoters and, of course, the local musical public.

Luton Music has won many awards and accolades over the years for the enterprise and variety of its programmes.  Its long season of around 20 concerts is unique among the country’s music societies.

The programmes are carefully chosen to showcase the finest musical talent in Britain and abroad, with many opportunities given to rising young stars of the future.  Luton Music cooperates with the Luton Music Service creating ambitious educational initiatives across a wide age range, involving many young performers and composers.

The late Chris Thomas, our previous Chairman (and Programme Secretary for 41 years until 2012/13), wrote a comprehensive history of the club from its founding up to 2013.
