PDMC provides quality music-making opportunities across the Peak District area. We rehearse weekly during term times and perform regularly, from informal concerts to ones in prestigious venues such as Buxton Opera House, as well as nationally through competitions and internationally through tours.

We're inviting all young musicians to try a rehearsal of one of our groups between Monday 29 April − Friday 3 May, free of charge, with joining offers available if you sign up for the rest of the term or the next academic year. See the details below to find the group for you − if you can't make the dates shown, its OK! Just get in touch with PDMC and they'll arrange another date you can make.
