High Peak Orchestra


High Peak Orchestra is a Symphony Orchestra based in the HIgh Peak district. We meet regularly on Monday evenings at 8.00 pm at the Mechanics Institute in Whaley Bridge. We perform concerts four times a year, mainly in Buxton, New Mills, and Chapel-en-le-Frith. New string players are always welcome, and there are occasional vacancies for wind and brass players. The orchestra is noted for friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We support several local charities.
