The Music Club of London exists to bring together people with a common interest in (mainly) classical music. In normal times we arrange group visits to events including concerts, recitals, operas, and ballets, together with other social meetings.  

During almost two years the Covid restrictions prevented most live events. Partly filling the gap in the Summer of 2021 we arranged three zoom events that were very well received by those who took part. David Edwards discussed the Shakespearean operas of Verdi, Malcolm Rivers spoke of his work with Benjamin Britten and Robert Mansell explored the colourful love life of Franz Liszt.

The events were recorded and can be seen by following these links. Links to the reviews are on the Reviews page
