Bach to Baby Christmas Family Concert
The Four Seasons

Featuring Lucy Jeal, violin, Alexandra MacKenzie, cello & Miaomiao Yu, piano

Vivaldi's stunning 'Winter' is a cornerstone of the violin repertoire, and just perfect for getting in the mood for a white Christmas. You'll hear teeth chattering outside in the cold, feet stamping to keep warm, and feel the relief of settling down in front of a blazing fire. That's not all: once you're thoroughly defrosted, we'll bring you Astor Piazzolla's Four Seasons - his passionate tango tribute to Vivaldi's masterpiece - and your favourite Christmas carols, of course. Come and join us, and don't forget those dancing shoes!

Doors open at 10.30am. Concert lasts for about an hour.

Flexi-tickets and giftcards are NOT valid for this concert.

Situated on a site at the northern tip of Highbury Fields, Christ Church was completed and consecrated in 1848 designed by architect Thomas Allom. Among other fine details inside are gorgeous stained glass windows in the chancel and north and south transepts. The church is a bustling hub for family-focussed activities and events, including our Bach to Baby concerts and on a sunny day, you can enjoy a run-around and picnic in Highbury Fields after the concert for a perfect day out.
