INSPIRING MUSIC

​We want every young person to be able to experience music making, whatever their background, by joining our PDMC family of talented and enthusiastic young musicians, staff, parents and supporters

 

WHAT WE DO

We provide music-making opportunities across an area roughly bounded by Buxton, Bakewell and Hope Valley: with string and wind ensembles, a big band and a choir. We rehearse weekly during term times and perform regularly, from informal concerts to events in prestigious venues such as Buxton Opera House, as well as nationally through competitions and internationally through tours.
