‘Most music societies engage visiting professional musicians to perform at their concerts, but at ours it is the members themselves who play the music. We encourage all ages and levels of ability and many enjoy the opportunity to get together with like-minded people to enjoy playing music together. But performing at our concerts is not compulsory!  The majority just come to listen.  Most concerts contain a wide range of music types, composers and ensembles. Everyone is welcome.’

‘We are a UK Charity. Our aim is to preserve, promote and celebrate the causes of jazz in the UK and beyond. We also interview musicians and other jazz icons! ... “People have died for jazz" said the legendary trumpeter John Birks 'Dizzy’ Gillespie" - and you still have a problem calling it 'serious music?'" The great British tenorist Alan Skidmore echoed the thought on a recent visit to 'The Jazz Centre (UK)'. "I've given six decades of my life to this art-form" he said " - and I appreciate its full celebration in words and deeds". Our Trustees believe him. And while we have a long way to go we believe that “The Jazz Centre (UK)” can soon remove the brackets from its last two letters.’

'Founded in 1890 and research concludes that probably only six societies in the whole of the country came into existence before that year and still survive. These are based in Brighton, Evesham, Paignton, Settle, Spalding and Tunbridge Wells ... The SODS have two paramount and parallel responsibilities: they have to provide the audiences with productions which are consistently of the highest possible standard and at the same time provide all the members with a hobby which is both rewarding and enjoyable ... Every artistic aspect has always been firmly underpinned by strong organisational, financial and stage management and the Society has now evolved into a business – it is only “amateur” in as much as the cast are not paid! Accordingly, the continuing success of the Society in three centuries is every bit as much thanks to a succession of committed and unsung administrators as to its performers on stage ...'

‘Was formed as an association in 1921 from the orchestral section of the Westcliff Operatic and Dramatic Society. The aims of the orchestra were, and remain to this day "to perform, for the benefit of members and friends, the works of the Great Masters as created in Overtures, Symphonies and Concertos for Solo Instruments". There were few opportunities at this time to hear such works outside of London, other than that performed by Military Bands.​‘

'Formed in April 2002 ... A minimum entry of grade 6 standard for rank and file players, with at least grade 8 for principals was established. Since then, many talented young players have been encouraged to join the band along with more experienced musicians, boosting membership to 50. The players come from a broad range of backgrounds, ranging from full-time students, to peripatetic music teachers, people working full-time in other professions and those close to or even in retirement.'
