The next performance from The Lowry Brass Quintet is on November 12 and will offer a musical medley of tuba, horn, trombone and trumpet.

On December 9 a very special Coffee Concert will welcome the joint leader of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, violinist James Clark on stage with principal cellist Jonathan Aasgaard.

The concert marks the second performance of the society’s residency in Buxton.

Ensemble 10/10 the contemporary arm of Liverpool Philharmonic will open the residency on November 3 when they perform the world premiere of a new work by Nigel Osborne.
