‘The Association concentrates on the area administered by West Berkshire Council from Tilehurst in the east to Hungerford and Lambourn in the west. Within this area there are some fine examples of the organ builder's craft, and although the Association is centred on Newbury, visits are made and events organised in the surrounding towns and villages. People join the Association for a variety of reasons. Some are expert players who desire to share their knowledge and experience with others and welcome the opportunity to give lunchtime and evening recitals. Others are amateurs or beginners who want to learn more. Others still are non-players but nevertheless fascinated by the organ in all its shapes and forms, the music written for it, and the venues at which organs are found, whilst some enjoy the social side where the talk is musical and the discussion lively.’

‘An auditioned chamber choir of some 40 local singing enthusiasts ... All members of the choir have a strong enough musical background that each is able to work on music on their own before the start of rehearsals ... The choir’s first concert as The Cecilia Consort was a performance of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas and Vivaldi’s Gloria at St Mary’s Church, Speen in July 1990. Ever since then the Consort, which sings primarily a capella or with organ accompaniment, has performed two or three concerts each year, covering a repertoire of sacred and secular music from across a broad historical span that is not typically tackled by choral societies.‘

'Kennet Opera is not a trading company; it is an unincorporated association run by volunteers to achieve our goal to encourage the participation and appreciation of concert song and stage opera works. No member of Kennet Opera gets paid for their work, the company is not run to make a profit - just to achieve the best possible for our audience ... We bring Grand Opera and concert song, in English, to Newbury and the surrounding areas. Established in 1993, we have staged a major production every year since then.'
