Welcome to the Oban Music Society web site.

As a society we are constituted to ‘promote and encourage the study, practice and knowledge of music in Oban and the surrounding district and other educational, artistic and cultural purposes connected with music’ and to that end we organise a number of concerts each year. You will find the list of our next season’s concerts immediately below this introduction together with other classic concerts at St John’s Cathedral. We hope you find the information on our site both interesting and useful and that it encourages you to come to our concerts and to bring friends with you. We are indebted to Enterprise Music Scotland for the donation they provide greatly assisting our ability to provide the concerts and to the Argyll & Bute Concert Tours organisation that coordinates the concerts across Argyll enabling us to get reduced fees from internationally acclaimed artists.
