Ackworth Concert Society | Classical Music Yorkshire

The aim of the Ackworth Concert Society is to provide high quality concerts and avoid the need to travel to major cities and pay higher prices to enjoy the experience. Our concerts are open to all and we particularly welcome children and people(under 18) who are admitted free when accompanied by an adult.

Classical Music Recitals are organised throughout the Yorkshire and Pontefract areas. Browse the site for upcoming dates.

"Simplicity is the highest goal, achievable when you have overcome all difficulties. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art."
