Ackworth Concert Society | Classical Music Yorkshire

The aim of the Ackworth Concert Society is to provide high quality concerts and avoid the need to travel to major cities and pay higher prices to enjoy the experience. Our concerts are open to all and we particularly welcome children and people(under 18) who are admitted free when accompanied by an adult.

Classical Music Recitals are organised throughout the Yorkshire and Pontefract areas. Browse the site for upcoming dates.

"Simplicity is the highest goal, achievable when you have overcome all difficulties. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art."

Ackworth Concert Society are delighted to welcome Marc Corbett-Weaver to a home coming Piano Recital. We are all excited to hear Marc perform a wonderful program on one of Ackworth School's new Steinways.

British musician Marc Corbett-Weaver works as a pianist and artistic director. He performs as a solo recitalist and concerto soloist in London, the UK and internationally and is Artistic Director of The Story of Christmas and London Firebird Orchestra.

Since graduating, Marc has performed extensively across the UK and in the Channel Islands, Austria, Greece and Italy – including performing both Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto no. 1 and Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto no. 2 at London’s Cadogan Hall. Marc’s entrepreneurial spirit has led him to found and direct two orchestra’s, the Orpheus Sinfonia and London Firebird Orchestra, and to successfully relaunch the annual London concert ‘The Story of Christmas’ following the death of its founder. Marc now combines his performing and teaching commitments with his roles as Artistic Director of both London Firebird Orchestra and The Story of Christmas.
