Registered Charity Number: 298391

The aim of Hampton School Music Society is to support and enhance the School’s well-deserved reputation for musical excellence, variety and fun. Membership is made up of parents of boys who study and perform music of all kinds at the School.

HSMS members receive a regular newsletter with photos and reviews, reminders of musical events and early notice of ticket sales. Occasional social events are arranged.

The Music Society awards both Lower and Upper School Music Cups each year for service to the Music Department. The recipients will have made a significant contribution, both in academic music and as performers in ensembles and choirs. They will have gone above and beyond the normal expectations in helping and participating. This year the  Junior Prize Winner was Stephon Ushmanagar.

Members of HSMS are also very welcome to join the HSMS Committee which meets twice a term. The Committee assists at performances and host events in order to raise extra funds for the Music department.

The HSMS committee meets twice a term and is always ready to welcome new members – please just join us for one of our meetings to see if this could be for you. We are particularly keen to find new members who have boys in the Lower School to provide continuity for the future.

HSMS run a bar at all the concerts and musical events at the school and the profits from this are a significant source of fundraising. We are always on the lookout for new volunteers to help with this so please do come and help.

Volunteering to help at events or becoming a committee member will give you an insight into the musical life of the school and of course it supports the Music Department and the boys.

The next Committee Meeting will be held on Tuesday 27 February at 7.30pm in the Garrick Building
