Roseberry Topping is a prominent sight near the North Yorkshire village of Great Ayton, where the Kildale Quartet rehearses
The Kildale Quartet was formed by a group of friends to provide a unique musical experience to a variety of audiences. It is an amateur ensemble specialising in concerts, and is named after the North Yorkshire Moors village where rehearsals were first
The Quartet aims to create an informal atmosphere during performances, offering programmes containing a mixture of full quartets and other music from a variety of genres, delivered with a brief commentary regarding the historical and musical context
of the works being performed.
Since its first performance in 2004, the Kildale Quartet has performed in local churches, for Music Societies, and as the accompanying group for a choral society. The Quartet has also given recitals in primary schools,
secondary schools and in residential homes.
Founder members Peter and Alison are joined by Claire Hall and Bruce Caswell for the 2017 season of concerts.
