Lizzie Ball kicks of society’s new season

The new season of Peak Music concerts will literally kick off on September 10 with Lizzie Ball and Classical Kicks, an acclaimed ensemble that introduced classical music performances to Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club. 

They will bring their own fresh, fun and uplifting approach with a varied programme ranging from Piazzola, Bartok and Manuel de Falla to Mexican love songs and Russian contemporary music.

Lizzie, pictured, created Classical Kicks to present classical music for a wider audience in a more down to earth environment. 

At this concert at the Cavendish Hall, Edensor, she will be joined by fellow Classical Kicks musicians Milos Milivojevic on accordion, Gabriella Swallow playing the cello and James Turner on percussion. 

Lizzie is becoming a woman to watch in the world of musical game-changers. Chosen last December by the Daily Mail as one of the UK’s most inspirational females, she has played on the world’s most famous stages with rock and roll’s royalty during several critically acclaimed tours including a recent 27 city tour with Hugh Jackman.  

Lizzie grew up in Hathersage, attended Lady Manners School in Bakewell and last year was awarded an honorary masters for services to music by the University of Derby.

Tickets for the performance at 7.30pm, can be reserved on 01629 640482 or online by emailing 

Peak Music stages an annual series of five high quality concerts, aiming to be a mini-Wigmore Hall for the Peak District and surrounding area. 

A subscription membership for the coming season costs £80 and provides post-concert opportunities to meet the many internationally renowned artists who perform.
