Peak District Music Centres will be hosting their annual Christmas Strings Gala Concert at the Octagon in Buxton on Friday, December 7, starting at 7.30pm.
Most of the children who will be performing attend schools in the North West of Derbyshire and range in age from 8 – 18.
The varied programme will include the traditional ensemble performance of Leroy Anderson’s ever popular Sleigh Ride, during which children from the audience are encouraged to join in playing sleigh bells on stage. The evening will end with a grand finale with all the junior and senior groups and the audience joining together for the carol God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.
Tickets available on the door and are £6 for adults, £4 for students and OAPs £4 and all children (under 16) accompanied with an adult are free.
