When the going gets tough in the run-up to Christmas and you've had about as much seasonal music as you can take, with choirs in every available church and hall - get yourself over to Newcastle Cathedral. 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 Four Seasons. The concert features breathtaking feats of virtuosity from the sensational violinist Fenella Humphreys and features the virtuoso concert pianist Warren Mailley-Smith in a performance of Mozart’s sublime Piano Concerto No 21 in C major. This award-winning concert pianist has performed with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, played many times for the British Royal Family and 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, make him a favourite with audiences and venue staff alike. His CDs are often played on the BBC and Classic FM which has described him as"Stunning."

So why not treat yourself to a Christmas Special on and join us for an evening to remember of uplifting music at Newcastle Cathedral, performed by this sensational orchestra The Piccadilly Sinfonietta, making their Newcastle debut.
