The Stirling Recorded Music Society is a group of classical music enthusiasts who meet every two weeks to discuss and listen to recordings. At most meetings a member presents a selection of recorded music and background information on the composers and musicians involved. (The composers are by no means limited to the illustrative but otherwise arbitrary list shown above). The meetings cover classical music of all types from early music to the contemporary and encompass chamber, orchestral, choral, opera, vocal and ballet music. The recordings include both recent and historic productions.

Not every member makes a presentation and some just come along for the enjoyment of listening and meeting others with similar interests. Some meetings are "members' nights" to which members (or visitors) bring a short piece to be played to the group. Usually these will be new or unusual works.

We are a friendly group and all meetings are also social occasions for us, as classical music lovers, so even if you would just like to listen and meet with us without taking an active part, you would be most welcome. Our meetings are held fortnightly in the Allan Community Centre, Bridge of Allan at 7.30 p.m. If you would like to contact us for further details, please email us or telephone either Pamela Masson, Secretary, 01786 880327 or Peter Taylor 01786 822803.

We are affiliated to the Federation of Recorded Music Societies.

All meetings are on Wednesdays at 7:30pm in the Allan Community Centre,
Fountain Road, Bridge of Allan
