Barnes Music Society is proud to have as its President the world-famous cellist Steven Isserlis. Born in Barnes, he comes from a very musical family. His two sisters are professional string players (Annette a violist and Rachel a violinist), and his grandfather Julian Isserlis was a composer.
The Society in its current form was created through a merger in 1985 of Castelnau Concerts with the Barnes Music Club, although its roots go back to the 1950s. Our outgoing President, the late Stephen Dodgson, had been Chairman of Castlenau Concerts, whilst the new President's late father, George Isserlis, had been Chairman of the Barnes Music Club. Both played a major role in maintaining the Society's high standards.
Barnes Music Society aims to foster appreciation of music, promoting first-class concerts, and encouraging other musical activities especially involving young musicians. These last are achieved by the Saturday family concerts for children and by the annual concert each May given by young musicians.
