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’. We are a voluntary organisation dedicated to bringing top quality classical music and musicians to Oban.  Most of our concerts are held on Sunday afternoons between October and March in St John’s Cathedral, George Street, Oban. You will find the list of our 2016-17 season’s concerts immediately following this introduction, together with other 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. Please let us know if you have any specific suggestions regarding ways to improve our programme or if you would like to become more involved with our Society. To keep abreast of upcoming concerts and events make sure you are on our mailing list. We are indebted to Enterprise Music Scotland for the grant they provide, greatly assisting our ability to provide these concerts, and to the Argyll and Bute Concert Tours organisation that coordinates the concerts across Argyll enabling us to get reduced fees from internationally acclaimed artists.
