St Mary's Church



The Classic Buskers' Christmas programme is strictly a Carol-free zone.

Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker, Vivaldi's Winter Concerto, Beethoven's Choral Symphony and works by Corelli and Handel will be included amongst other seasonal numbers, but the Buskers believe that carols are best left to choirs!

Technical virtuosity, combined with musical seriousness, humour and high entertainment are a perfect recipe - the audience were delighted.
