Welcome to Colchester Classics where Classical Music matters!

Welcome to you especially if you’ve just popped here after reading features and columns in Essex County Standard, Essex Life, Daily Gazette or Colchester 101 or catching up with us at concerts and rehearsals.

We often offer concert CD signings with international visiting musicians including  international violinist Tasmin Little who recently commented “For anyone who likes a personal service in CDs and prefers to speak to an actual person…. a fantastic service and all you need to do is give her a call.”

Celebrating 10 years as a Classical Music CD service to clever collectors, choirs and at concerts. We’re as passionate about providing the best service as we were when we started in 2006.

As well as all of the above and much more, we also like to offer you some exclusive competitions (see above on the black tab).

Still not sure what we do?

Please email , Freephone (0800 999 6994) or overseas 44(0) 1206 520166, for more info and we’ll take it from there. Please rest assured your details will never be shared without your permission.

By the way, you don’t have to restrict yourself to the CDs featured here, on our social media campaigns or on our printed mailshots. Pick CDs from your own wish list and pick up the telephone to enquire, challenge us with your requests!

Best wishes
