Covid-19 announcement

MMS

It is with the deepest regret that we are having to announce the cancellation of our concerts for the first half of our 2020/21 Season, from September till December 2020, due to the current Covid-19 virus pandemic. We await further developments nationally before making a decision about the rest of the Season. We are aware that many Societies are taking similar decisions, and while we are keen to get back to a sense of normality, we must also be realistic with regards to the safety of our audience and our performers.

We have also decided that Membership from Season 2019/20 will be extended into Season 2020/21 and all Admission charges for any concerts will be at the ‘Single Concert’ rate. This means there will be no actual Membership Subscription for Season 2020/21, therefore potentially no income for the Society. However, members and friends are invited to make a donation to MMS if they wish. This could help us to provide some form of compensation for the musicians.

Please visit our Donations page for details of how to make a donation, and please consider including a Gift Aid Statement, if possible, which can add 25% to your donation at no extra cost to yourself.

Thank you for your understanding and we do hope to welcome you to more of our fantastic concerts in the not-too-distant future.
