The Wagner Society of Scotland was founded in 1984 under Derek Watson’s chairmanship. After Derek’s retiral in 2013, a new Committee was elected with Dale Bilsland as Chair, serving until 2017 when Derek Williams was elected.
Our aim is to promote the knowledge and appreciation of the life & works of Richard Wagner.
We hold meetings monthly from September to June/July and a residential study course in the summer. Meetings are generally held on Sundays at 6.30pm at the Edinburgh Society of Musicians, 3 Belford Road, Edinburgh EH4 3BL. See events page for current programme.
We welcome guests to our talks, and offer substantial discounts should you decide to become a member. Students are eligible for free membership and attendance at the talks.
Please have a browse through the site, and we very much look forward to welcoming you to one of our upcoming events!
