Providing a refreshing change from Christmas carolling choirs, Spitalfields Music present a stimulating wintry programme of music to see you right through to the New Year.
Concerts span early, Baroque, Renaissance and contemporary music with lots of lovely madrigal singing. The fabulous Streetwise Opera also premiere "Fables - A Film Opera", part-opera, part-film created by some of the country’s leading composers and filmmakers working with Streetwise Opera performers (who are homeless or formerly homeless).
Tickets start from just £5 and there are also a number of free events, including winter songs on Crispin Place E1 on Thursday 16 December, 6pm.
Spitalfields Music Winter Festival runs 13-18 December 2010 and 5-7 January 2011 in Shoreditch Church. Tickets, from £5, available from Spitalfields Music Box Office on 020 7377 1362. All info at spitalfieldsmusic.org.uk
