Peak Music’s 2022/2023 season is coming to an exciting climax in the next few weeks. The March concert featuring the versatile talents of James Pearson and Lizzie Ball is a sell-out event with all tickets taken. This is no surprise, as they are both Peak Music favourites.
James is pianist and musical director at the famous Ronnie Scott’s jazz club in London, but is equally adept in the classical genre. Lizzie, who grew up in Derbyshire, is a vocalist and violinist who is also at home in varying styles of music. Their concert for Peak Music concentrates on the American classics, with music by George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Aaron Copland amongst others.
The season finishes on 27th April when the Sacconi Quartet perform at the Cavendish Hall, Edensor.
The quartet was formed in 2001 by four graduates of London’s Royal College of Music and has since gained great acclaim, performing in concert halls and festivals across the UK and Europe.
Their programme will include pieces by Haydn and Schubert as well as contemporary composers Caroline Shaw and Jessie Montgomery. Tickets for this event cost £25 for non-members and can be booked via the Society’s website.
The next Peak Music season begins in the autumn featuring concerts by the Bones Apart trombone quartet, the Jervaulx Singers, the Katona Twins guitar duo, James Pearson Jazz Trio and the Maxwell String Quartet. Membership details can also be found on the website.
