For 100 years since the end of the First World War, the hills of the High Peak have echoed with the sound of men singing in harmony.
On the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, internationally renowned soprano Lesley Garrett joins Chapel-en-le-Frith Male Voice Choir for an evening of music making to celebrate the choir’s centenary.
Lesley Garrett - whose long established reputation in opera, classical and popular song makes her a firm favourite with Buxton audiences - has a strong connection with the Opera House and the Buxton Festival. She will be singing a selection of well-known and popular songs from across the years and will join the choir as they celebrate this great achievement
The evening is to be hosted by Ian McMillan - the Bard of Barnsley - whose unmistakable voice is frequently heard on the radio as the presenter of BBC Radio 3’s 'The Verb' and whose poetry - often moving, wry and witty observations on life - is widely admired. Ian will be supported by multi-instrumentalist, composer and singer Luke Carver-Goss.
