GLOSSOP MUSIC FESTIVAL
Glossop Music Festival events to be postponed
Glossop Music Festival has reviewed its ongoing commitments in the light of the Covid-19 (coronavirus) situation. Taking into account the current advice, escalating situation, and the prediction that the epidemic is likely to reach its peak around the month of the Summer Festival, together with the Festival’s financial commitments, we have regrettably decided to postpone both the concert to be given by the Aquarelle Guitar Quartet on Friday 27 March 2020 and the Summer Festival in June 2020.
Glossop Music Festival was founded in 2013 and operates under the auspices of the Glossop Concert Society, a registered charity which has put on professional classical music concerts for over twenty-five years.
Our aim is to bring the highest quality of music to the widest possible audience through a year-long series of concerts, comprising a Summer Festival together with one-off concerts throughout the year. We intend to make Glossop Music Festival a truly international concert series, and an annual fixture in the diary of both musicians and audiences. We are a festival for the people of Glossop, the High Peak and Derbyshire, welcoming young and old, newcomers and the well-seasoned, to world-class classical music in a relaxed atmosphere. As Carl Sagan said of his desire to share his love of science, “When you’re in love you want to tell the world”. We feel the same about classical music.
