Welcome to the Peak Music Society

The Peak Music Society is a flourishing music society based at the Cavendish Hall at Edensor on the Chatsworth Estate.

Our members enjoy a series of high quality chamber concerts throughout the autumn and spring each year.

Membership for the 2021-22 season of six concerts is now available for £90. The season will start on Tuesday September 21st 2021 with the fabulous James Pearson Jazz Trio, the house band of the world famous Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London. We hope to serve wine and canapés after the Queen’s Six concert to celebrate the end of the season. Click here to download a membership application form, or for enquiries about membership email .

PLEASE NOTE: Because of social distancing restrictions in the Cavendish Hall imposed by the Chatsworth Estate for the foreseeable future, seating capacity is severely restricted. We are therefore running two separate and shorter performances, at 4pm and 7.30pm. A free glass of wine (or soft drink) will be offered on entry to the James Pearson Jazz Trio gig, as we can no longer serve wine and canapés afterwards as we had originally planned.

Tickets may also be available to book by clicking here or on the door for some of our concerts, priced between £22 and £30. Email or call 01629 640482 for further details or help in booking.

The Sounds of Summer

What a wonderful way to spend a summer evening, listening to pianist Tim Horton at the Cavendish Hall in Edensor. As the breeze from the open doors cooled us in the hall, Tim conjured pictures in our imagination with his rendition of preludes by Debussy and Chopin. From the fascinating compositions in which the number […]

We’re Back!

Live music came back to the Cavendish Hall with the wonderfully irreverent baroque quartet, Red Priest, playing two concerts on the same day to ensure all members of Peak Music, alongside some lucky ticket holders, could enjoy the performance whilst meeting the current social distancing requirements. Restrictions aside, it was glorious, delightful, magnificent and just […]
