! Bakewell KEY

‘A charitable organisation which aims to support and promote music-making for young people in North West Derbyshire. Our principal activity is to bring young musicians together to experience playing in an ensemble at weekly term-time rehearsals. Motivated by talented ensemble directors, our players are able to develop their musical skills and to make new musical friends. We have wind and string ensembles which range from beginners and early years through to accomplished players and school leaving age ... Most of our ensembles meet in Buxton, Bakewell and the Hope Valley but some meet in nearby villages. There are also regular opportunities to perform - both in informal settings in front of friends and family and at prestigious public venues.’

+ Bakewell Choral Society
Forthcoming Concerts and Recitals

'Has been in existence ... since 1907 and it now enjoys the position of being Derbyshire's premier brass band. It has its roots in the community and combines the all important job of providing music for community and religious events in the town as well as hosting a number of its own concerts around the area. The band also enjoys contesting ... The band is self funding and is willing to take on musical engagements of all types ... Players on holiday in the Peak District are very welcome to attend rehearsals either to listen or play and with a little notice the band can loan out most instruments for visitors to use.'

 

Established in 1971 and currently has over 60 members. In addition to performing at least three concerts a year, the choir presents additional concerts in support of charitable events in Derbyshire and South Yorkshire. The Choir sings a wide range of music, from serious choral works to more light-hearted offerings. Baslow Choir also specialises in exploring the lesser-known parts of the choral repertoire.'

 

‘A friendly, social choir, who enjoy singing and performing to the best of our ability. ... We now have around 30 members. Our general repertoire is very wide – including madrigals, French song, Elgar, Cole Porter, The Lord is My Shepherd (Vicar of Dibley theme), and even Queen! ... We are always on the lookout for new members. Experience and technical knowledge are less important than enthusiasm and the willingness to practice and learn.’

 

‘Set in the heart of the beautiful Peak District National Park, parts of the house date from the 12th Century, sitting like a jewel in its Elizabethan terraced gardens, and overlooking the River Wye ... Haddon Hall is becoming renowned for its varied programme of music held throughout the season ... Performances are held at 12.00 and 2.00 pm, providing time to enjoy lunch or tea in our Restaurant. These recitals can be enjoyed at leisure and are included with admission tickets.’
