Friends of Bryanston Music


Welcome to Friends of Bryanston Music - Celebrating and Supporting Music at Bryanston 

As an Old Bryanstonian (Forrester 1966), I am delighted to have been asked by the school to be Patron of Friends of Bryanston Music, a vibrant group open to all who enjoy music and recognise its importance to Bryanston and its community.

Sir Mark Elder CH, CBE

Bryanston has always placed the same level of importance on the arts as it has sport and academic studies, and this approach helped me and so many others discover and develop our passion for music. The Tom Wheare Music School is proof, if proof were needed, of that.

The breadth of music-making facilities and performance spaces within the Music School enable a wide range of performances to take place, from small, intimate concerts to the grander-scale Professional Concert Series.

On behalf of Bryanston and the Friends of Bryanston Music, I warmly invite you to come and enjoy a great and varied selection of performances by both talented Bryanston pupils and professional musicians.

Sir Mark Elder CH, CBE
Patron of Friends of Bryanston Music

  • termly newsletters updating you on events
  • priority booking for the Professional Concert Series
