Based in Calver, Derbyshire, the Peak Chamber Orchestra exists to play beautiful classical orchestral music in an informal and friendly atmosphere. Attracting amateur musicians throughout the Peak District (and beyond), the Orchestra has been led for many years by conductor Glyn Davies until his death in August 2016. After a period of consolidation, we have now appointed a new conductor, Adam Green, who we hope will lead us forward into the future.
Playing symphonies , concerti, and other works by the 'greats' as well as pieces by lesser known composers, the orchestra provides an opportunity to make music in a nurturing and collaborative way.
The orchestra welcomes new players of a reasonable standard. There are no joining fees and being a member of the orchestra is an ideal opportunity to develop as a musician, sharing your knowledge and experience with other players. To find out more - simply click here .
