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.

Four young postgraduates (soprano Julia Mariko Smith, mezzo-soprano Naomi Rogers, tenor Philip O’Connor and bass Peter Lidbetter) from the Royal College of Music, together with their accompanist, Christopher Pulleyn, gave a memorable gala performance of mostly well-loved favourites that would have been familiar to […]

Simply Magical

The exciting classical quintet ZRI demonstrated their superior craftmanship to Peak Music audiences playing with an exquisite intensity rarely seen. The quintet, which takes its name from Zum Roten Igel (or The Red Hedgehog), the legendary Viennese venue in the times when Brahms and Schubert were alive, delivered a very technically demanding program of Brahms […]

“Today’s concert wasn’t good or very good – it was brilliant!”, feedback that summed up the incredible start to the new Peak Music season.
