The BritishSpanish Society is hosting an evening of music, wine and tapas at St James’s Church Picadilly this Friday 25 November 2022, doors open at 5:30 pm
The BSS is delighted to once again be holding their Autumn Concert in the impressive St James’s Church, Piccadilly. The church, which dates back to 1676, was designed by highly acclaimed British Architect Sir Christopher Wren. Wren’s aim for the church was to enable the largest number of people to hear the service and see the preacher. The acoustic qualities of the church have been consistently celebrated with the church hosting music greats across the ages from Haydn to Adele.
This year’s music director is former BritishSpanish Society scholarship winner Nicole Crespo O’Donoghue. Nicole describes the concert’s programme as a ‘celebration of Spanish composers’.
