The Piccadilly Christmas Concert

The Piccadilly Christmas Concert
An evening of sublime classical music, opera and festive song by some of London’s most exciting classical stars.

 

When the going gets tough in the run-up to Christmas and you've had about as much seasonal music as you can take - think Trafalgar Square and carols round the Norwegian Tree, bands in Oxford Street, choirs in every available church and hall - get yourself over to St James's Church Piccadilly. Virtuoso pianist Warren Mailley-Smith will be entertaining his audience with a programme that is both restful and refreshingly stimulating. This is just the place to put down your last-minute Christmas shopping, gather your thoughts and renew your emotional energy. An award-winning concert pianist and a favourite performer for the British Royal Family, Warren offers a programme of Beethoven and Chopin. In 2016 he became the first british pianist to perform Chopin’s complete works from memory. An exceptional talent and a self-deprecating sense of humour, combined with his formidable technical skill and mature musicality, makes him a favourite with audiences and venue staff alike.   This year he is joined in a performance of Mozart’s sublime Piano Concerto No. 12 by one of the UK’s foremost chamber groups – the Veles Ensemble - and the outstanding soprano star, Susan Parkes will perform arias by Puccini and some festive songs.
