Spitalfields Winter Festival
Friday 6th December – Wednesday 18th December 2013
Bringing some musicality to the heart of Spitalfields, the Spitalfields Winter Festival is a celebration of song. With traditional festive pieces, carols and more, there is plenty to enjoy during the December festival.
Live festive music
Offering an eclectic mix of styles, periods and performances, the Spitalfields Winter Festival is an ideal way to escape the hustle and bustle of the high street at Christmas; forget your Christmas shopping, your table and menu plans, the endless work dos and the thousands of cards you have to write, and relax with the soothing sounds of the choirs and orchestras as they make festive music.
For those that like their traditional music at Christmas the Spitalfields Winter Festival caters in abundance. Opening the extravaganza will be A Tale of Two Seasons, a dramatic classical showcase featuring Sally Bruce-Payne, La Serenissima and Adrian Chandler and the Royal Academy of Music will be present with an opera show featuring countertenor Lawrence Zazzo.
Festive tunes in Spitalfields
With spellbinding Christmas songs and celebratory winter pieces, a whole range of groups are performing vibrant festive music to put you in a tingling Yuletide mood as part of the Spitalfields music events. Other highlight performances include Norwegian guitarist Stian Westerhus re-imagining his acclaimed album with Britten Sinfonia as well as a show by The Sixteen who will perform a selection of work from the legendary Britten and Poulenc. A well loved tradition, the Spitalfields Winter Festival 2013 is perfect for all the family as a special musical Christmas treat.
