Johannesburg Musical Society

Johannesburg Musical Society

The Johannesburg Musical Society holds a special place in the hearts of music-lovers. The oldest music society in South Africa, it can trace its birth date right back to 1902, when Edward VII had just ascended the throne of England and the Anglo-Boer war had just ended.

For well over 100 years it has held a unique place in South African musical history, presenting the world’s most renowned solo and chamber performers, and also serving as a platform on which our own country’s most impressive talents are presented to the wider public.

The Johannesburg Musical Society has an appreciative and extremely loyal audience, and has been served - since its inception - by some illustrious names who have willingly given their time and skills to the Society. The Earl of Athlone served as its President, Sir Lionel Philips was its Vice-President and Major-General Baden-Powell (of scouting fame) was an early enthusiastic patron of the Society.

The Johannesburg Musical Society continues - 108 years after its inception - to ensure that its audience members enjoy the very best of both established and emerging talent, thus maintaining its tradition of excellence.

However, if the Society were to rely only on ticket sales and membership fees, there would not be enough funds to offer the superb variety which it brings to you. The Society is also assisted by gifts and donations from concerned and committed parties, whose generosity makes it possible for the Society to plan a varied and exciting programme each year.

Why don’t you consider helping us to continue this proud tradition? You can do so by making a donation or even setting up a trust or foundation that will fund an annual concert. The Society is registered as a non-profit organisation, and all donations are exempt from donations tax.

Call the JMS on 011 728 5492 to discuss how this may be done.
