Peak Chamber Orchestra - Music in the peak district


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 appointed a new conductor, Adam Green, who lead us until Summer 2018. We have now appointed Tim Maunder as our conductor to take 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 .
