Tickets are on sale now for the 14th Glory of Christmas Concert being held at the beautiful music venue of St John’s Smith Square in London on Monday 2nd December 2019 at 7.30pm. This year we are delighted to announce that our Patron, Sir Michael Morpurgo will once again be reading – and singing at this year’s concert. We look forward to announcing other readers shortly.
The evening is a wonderful celebration of music from The Thames Chamber Orchestra accompanied by the stunning voices of The Choir of Christ’s College, Cambridge. The evening features much-loved classical pieces from Bach and Handel as well as seasonal carols under the musical direction of conductor Keith Marshall.
This year we are delighted to welcome two special guest performers, soloist Theo Golden and saxophonist Robert Burton. Countertenor Theo Golden is studying Music at Durham University having been awarded a Vice Chancellor’s Music Scholarship and has previously held the prestigious post of Alto Choral Scholar at Wells Cathedral. Saxophonist Robert won the Woodwind Category Final of BBC Young Musician 2018 and secured a place in the Grand Final of the competition. He is currently studying Classical Saxophone at the Royal Academy of Music.
Following the concert we will also be hosting a sponsored drinks reception in the crypt and welcome all guests to join us for some Christmas cheer with the whole team from Oracle.
