Making Music LogoRTWCS is affiliated to the National Federation of Music Societies (“Making Music”), and choir’s constitution provides for a “Making Music” representative on the committee.

The National Federation of Music Societies was founded in 1935 at the instigation of Sir George Dyson (1883-1964) who was their first Chairman and President. George Dyson was also for a time the president of RTWCS and once conducted the choir. Now renamed “Making Music”, the organisation represents and supports over 2,900 voluntary and amateur music groups throughout the UK, and provides a number of useful services and advice.
