Overview

Biographical / Historical

The Oxford and Cambridge Musical Club was founded in 1899, as a residential gentleman's club in London, open to past and present members of Oxford University and Cambridge University. Its original purpose was the performance of chamber music, but this has expanded over the years to include solo instrumental music, vocal music and orchestral music. Its first premises were at 47 Leicester Square, but from 1914 to 1940 the Club was situated at 6 Bedford Square. At present its regular venue for concerts is University College, London. The Club is still in existence and is currently run in association with the University College London Chamber Music Club. Further information and a selection of digitised material from the archive can be found on the Club's website.
