‘A friendly group of people, mostly amateurs, who like playing, singing, and listening to chamber music. Members get together to make music in their own homes and the club register enables them to find a piano accompanist or other instrumentalists, required to play the desired pieces. In addition, informal monthly concerts are held from October to April and are given in very pleasant surroundings in a hall at Churt, just outside Farnham. This gives members an opportunity to perform pieces which they have prepared, and to enjoy listening to fellow members.’

Bury Court Opera began staging opera in 2007 in the intimate environment of The Barn at Bury Court and now presents an annual season in early Spring and occasional productions at other times of the year. Bury Court Opera was granted charitable status in 2013 and is dedicated to the support of young performers, directors and designers at the early stage of their careers. The Barn, with it's beamed interior, is blessed with outstanding acoustics and our aim is to demonstrate that opera produced on this smaller scale has the potential to have a greater impact, providing more immediacy and emotional intensity than a more extravagant production in a larger house.’
