The UK's biggest free outdoor classic concert

2009 has been identified as International Year of Astronomy marking several momentous events – including the 40th anniversary of the first manned landing on the Moon and the 400th anniversary of the use of the telescope by Galileo Galilei to observe the Moon and the planet Jupiter.

Join sinfonia ViVA and regular Darley Park concert conductor James Holmes in the wonderful setting of Darley Park for a spectacular programme of music with links to all things astronomical.

Also featured this year is the trio Curios, winners of the 2008 BBC Jazz Awards Band of The Year led by Derby-born pianist Tom Cawley who is joined by drummer Josh Blackmore who also hails from Derby.

With an amazing firework finale, come along and be part of the 30,000-strong crowd at the UK’s biggest free outdoor classical concert, in the stunning natural amphitheatre that is Darley Park.
