Join us to celebrate our 25th anniversary with a year-long journey of sound during which we’ll experience the musical seasons throughout Europe.

We’ll set out in spring, the season of the choir’s first concert a quarter-century ago, and sing farewell to the English countryside with songs by Wilbye and Morley. Around Advent or Christmas our choral coach should have reached Germany to prize the heavenly harmonies of our hosts Praetorius, Schütz and Hassler – after which our itinerary leads to Italy for some carnivalesque counterpoint by Gabrieli, Willaert and Banchieri. Our party’s procession proceeds to Spain for luscious sounds of Lent by Lobo, Geurrero and De Victoria, and then venite! Easter is in Venice where Gabrieli, Croce and Di Lasso supply a sumptuous soundscape – before Byrd beckons us back to Britain to arrive, exhausted but exhilarated, in time for the subsequent spring.

We are proud to be joined on this journey by our anniversary travel companions, the Chelys Consort of Viols, who will pull all their festive strings for added celebratory sonority. There may be balloons and bubbles, and we’ve heard rumours of a large interval cake.

What a journey it has been! What a journey it will be! Join us! Venite!

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. This is just the place to put down your last-minute Christmas shopping, gather your thoughts, and renew your emotional energy.

The Piccadilly Sinfonietta is one of the UK’s most exciting young ensembles and performs a selection of well-loved classics including the seasonal Christmas Concerto by Corelli and Vivaldi’s exquisite Winter, from The Four Seasons.

To celebrate its 11th consecutive year, the Piccadilly Christmas Concert 2019 features the virtuoso concert pianist Warren Mailley-Smith in performance with the Piccadilly Sinfonietta, with Mozart’s sublime Piano Concerto No. 21 in C major.

The award-winning concert pianist and a favourite performer for the British Royal Family recently 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. The stunning soprano Susan Parkes will perform a selection of arias by Puccini.
