Music and Masons

Music has a significant place in Masonic philosophy and ritual as one of the seven liberal arts and it has always featured prominently in Freemasonry.

It is therefore quite fitting that there have been, and are, many musicians in Freemasonry.

Here are some musicians who were/are Freemasons. We will add more names and links to these names over time.
