Glossop is a former mill town in Derbyshire some 15 miles East of Manchester. It is the home of the Glossop Music Festival which this year is celebrating its 10th birthday with five days of musical events from 2 to 6 May 2023. There is a Glossop Festival Orchestra which makes two appearances at the festival, directed by violinist Sophie Rosa in a Baroque programme with music by Purcell, Bach and Vivaldi, and at the festival's closing concert where Chloé van Soeterstède conducts Beethoven's Symphony No. 4 and Mozart's Coronation Piano Concerto with pianist (and festival vice-president Viv MacLean). A rather apt programme given that the closing concert is on 6 May!

Other events include a pop-up pub gig, a family concert, a late-night event with a quintet of folk musicians led by local legend Sam Partridge, and a community choral workshop led by Hallé choral staff.
