Music Centre Activities



Bands, Choirs, Orchestras and Ensembles

Merton Music Foundation provides a range of music making activities as part of its Merton Youth Music Programme at Merton Music Centre, Canterbury Road, Morden. The Centre offers a structured progression of centrally run instrumental groups, bands, choirs, orchestras and ensembles.


A termly membership fee is charged as a contribution towards the running costs of Merton Youth Music. Payment of this fee provides members with access to the Foundation's bands, choirs, orchestras and ensembles. Members may participate in more than one activity without further charge.

Reductions are also available for families receiving MMF Trust Fund support and for second and subsequent children within families. Further information about the MMF Trust Fund may be obtained in confidence from the MMF Office.

Activities take place on Monday and Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings.


In addition to weekly or fortnightly rehearsals there are regular opportunities to perform in concerts provided by the MMF. Concerts involving all groups are given termly, except for the Merton Youth Orchestra which performs twice yearly.


Merton Youth Music Tours

Merton Youth Music provides regular tours abroad for its senior groups. Not only are these of immense educational value but they also offer wider educational benefits such as the opportunity to promote international relationships. Groups also from time to time visit other parts of the country to attend music festivals and residential courses.
