Dark Peak Concert band has delivered a gold-winning performance for the second year running, at the prestigious National Concert Band Festival.

This year’s performances included Song of Lir, based on an old Celtic tale, and Eine Kleien Yiddishe Ragmusik, a fusion of ragtime, classical and traditional Jewish Klezmer music.

Musical Director Jeff Snowdon said: “This band has a wide range of abilities and the adjudicators at the festival commented particularly on the synergy of the group and how well they work together.”

The band is one of five ensembles within the umbrella of Dark Peak Music Trust.

The Trust will next perform their annual Christmas concert at Glossop Parish Church on Sunday December 8 at 7.30pm.
