About Andover Music Club
A Brief History
The club was founded in 1946 by Miss Gladys New, who was a well-known singer in Andover. Not just the founder of the club, Gladys was also the Secretary for 46 years and the Treasurer for many years. ‘Her’ Music Club has steadily developed, to become one of the best-supported in Southern England.
We present seven concerts every season. The aim is to offer a wide range of music performed by professional artists.
The season’s subscription is the equivalent of around £10.00 per concert at the undiscounted subscription price.
Such well-known professional musicians and ensembles as The London Mozart Players and The Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields have asked to play for us. This is testimony to the high standard that our enthusiastic audience expect.
Gladys New passed away in October 1995; an obituary, by former Chairman of the club Dr Arthur Blyth, can be viewed here.

The Officers and Committee of Andover Music Club have taken great care in arranging the concert series detailed on this web site and have ensured that all material is as accurate as possible. Should changes become necessary, members have the Chairman's assurance that:
- changes by agents/artists are allowed only when justified;
- any replacement artist(s) or music choice will be of at least equal merit to the original;
- if possible, changes will be published in the Club's printed programmes, by announcements at the concert and on this web site.
