About High Peak Orchestra

The High Peak Orchestra was founded in 1975 as The Co-operative Orchestra. We have always been based in Whaley Bridge, although membership is drawn from a wide area, including Greater Manchester and Cheshire.

The Orchestra is noted for its friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We rehearse on Monday evenings at the Mechanics Institute in Whaley Bridge.

We have vacancies for some string players, and there are also occasional vacancies for wind players.

We are always pleased to be given opportunities to perform for charitable organizations and glad to hear of new concert venues in the area.
