The 2017-18 season concludes with two concerts:
Our now traditional Summer Concert and Garden Party on Sunday 24th June, 4pm in the delightful setting of Old Glossop Parish Church of All Saints.
The second concert is the Strings Concert on Saturday 30th June at St James’ Church, Whitfield at 7pm
Join us for our traditional end of year celebration featuring the Concert Band, Sinfonia, Intermediate Wind Band and Chinley and Glossop Junior Bands. With music ranging from Bizet’s Carmen Suite to Holst’s masterpiece for wind band the Suite No.1 in F, and also including a “Film-night Spectacular” from our junior bands, it promises a fun packed end to the year.
As we bid a fond farewell and bon voyage to our leavers, many of whom have been with us since they were primary school age and are now going on to further education, we also welcome new players who have joined since Christmas for their first concert. It is also a chance to give awards for outstanding achievement and throughout the year.
We hope everyone, children, parents, gradparents and friends will join us for food and drinks outside (weather permitting) on the green….. a thoroughly pleasant finale to another highly successful year for Dark Peak.
This is a very popular event and seating is limited so we strongly recommend getting your tickets in advance. There will be some standing room, but we don’t want anyone dissappointed. Tickets cost £5 full/ £1 Children and can be purchased online using the link below.
The Strings Concert features the Junior, Intermedaite and Senior Strings Orchestras, concluding with a mass performance from all the players. We hope parents and friends will come and support all our young players, many of whom will be taking part in their very first concert.
