About Us

In the heart of Lagos Island, situated conspicuously between the National Museum, the City Mall, the age-long Onikan Stadium and the former official residence of the Nigeria’s foremost Centre of artistic excellence: the MUSON Centre, an acronym for the Musical Society of Nigeria..

The Musical Society of Nigeria (MUSON) was founded as a result of the interaction and commitment of some friends who love and appreciate classical music. These included Mr. Akintola Williams, Mr. Louis Mbanefo, Chief Ayo Rosiji, Chief Rasheed Gbadamosi and Mrs. Fracesca Emanuel. Along with Sir. Mervyn Brown, then British High Commissioner in Nigeria and Lady Brown, these distinguished Nigerians stimulated interest and awareness of Nigerians, especially in Lagos of the richness and elegance of classical music.


MUSON members are the stakeholders of the society. Each category of membership has its own unique set of benefits that ensure that all members of MUSON get the very best of the society and help towards contributing to the growth and spread of classical, Nigeria folk and contemporary music.
