'Founded in 1948, is a charitable organisation which promotes a number of professional classical concerts throughout the year. Its aim is to bring classical music of a high calibre to Evesham and the Vale for the benefit of all. EDMC engages groups, usually with international reputations, who play in the big venues in London and in many cases, worldwide. They cover the complete range of classical music, including duets, trios, string quartets, piano recitals, vocal concerts, brass bands and orchestras. Usually, each year there is one concert which encourages the participation of school aged students.'

'The Wychavon Festival of Brass was the result of an initiative developed by the Vale of Evesham Commerce and Tourism Association which, in the late 80’s, was seeking to raise the profile of the town. An exciting brass band contest was seen as an interesting and novel way of attracting visitors and offering the local population the opportunity to hear and experience some fabulous brass music!' Held Late October.

‘The Band, now styled on Military Band instrumentation, was originally founded by a small nucleus of 7 or 8 young musicians in February 1992, following the demise of the Evesham Sea Cadet Corps Band. The number of members achieving good results for examinations set by the Royal Schools of Music has resulted in the Band rapidly gaining recognition as a successful training ground for young musicians and aspiring adults within the Vale of Evesham.’

‘A thriving amateur mixed choir of about 100 voices ... Our concerts, usually three each year, are performed in Pershore Abbey ... a superb venue with acoustics which are ideal for a chorus of our size. We work with a number of professional orchestras and soloists who join us from all over the country ... There are no formal auditions although you may be expected to attend a simple voice test.’

‘Takes its name from the beautiful Vale of Evesham, where we are based, in Worcestershire. Vale Connection Ladies Barbershop Chorus (as we were originally known) was started in Evesham back in 1994 by a small but perfectly formed group of just ten ladies who shared a passion for singing in harmony. Today we're still singing - and still growing! We sing unaccompanied A Cappella style and most of our songs are arranged in the kind of close, four-part harmony that gets toes tapping and spines tingling.’
