The society was founded in 1923 as Woking Music Club by Mrs Margaret Walker, a prominent local figure on the music scene. It survived 94 years.
Famous performers for the society in the past include Dame Myra Hess, Kathleen Ferrier, Artur Rubinstein, Gerald Moore, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Dame Janet Baker, Julian Bream, Radu Lupu and the Amadeus String Quartet. More recently we have enjoyed performances by outstanding young musicians including violinist Chloe Hanslip, cellist Alice Neary, flautist Emily Beynon, the Katona guitar duo, the prize-winning Piatti String Quartet and soprano Elizabeth Watts, winner of the lieder section of the Cardiff Singer of the World competition.
