A Gypsy Jazz Christmas

Irene Serra, jazz vocals & Sol Grimshaw, guitar

At the Bach to Baby concert, my true love gave to me: Six guitar chords, five jazz solos, four crotchet beats, three verse repeats, too good to miss, and a Santa Clause who's coming to town! Get in the spirit with our gypsy jazz favourites and Christmas classics.

Magical music, festive frolics, sparkles and spices, oh my! Grab your family, harness up your fastest reindeer and meet us at a Bach to Baby concert for the perfect prelude to the holiday season!

Doors open 30 minutes before the concert starts
The concert lasts around 45 minutes

Christmas Kreisler Krackers

Marcus Barcham-Stevens, violin & Christina Lawrie, piano

Throw on your christmas jumper and get ready for a night out in across Europe, revelling in the blinding virtuosity of the violin. Starting the journey in Vienna with a Kreisler Kracker, we'll stump to Bartok's intoxicating Roumanina Folk Dances, and pause for Bach's uplifting Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring. All with chunks of Christmas cheer, making for a real cracker!

About the venue

Tradition has it that the Manor of Stoke Newington (meaning 'new town in wood') was established prior to its inclusion in the Domesday Book of 1086, where there would have probably been a simple chapel to cater for the small farming community. The Victorian New Church where our concerts are held was designed by the famous architect Sir George Gilbert Scott in the magnificent 13th century Gothic style. It is now used in many different ways to serve the local community, through worship, support of the vulnerable, and its popular N16 Centre.

Situated across the road from the beautiful Clissold Park, why not start your morning with a Bach to Baby concert, followed by a walk and a picnic in the park for lunch!
