This afternoon the walls of St John The Evangelist Church, on Princes Street, will resound to the music of Vivaldi, Corelli and Mozart, played by Fenella Humphreys and the Piccadilly Sinfonietta in a special matinee performance, in the wake of their sold-out evening performance at St Giles’ later that day.

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, step off Prince’s Street in Central Edinburgh into one of Edinburgh’s most beautiful churches, St John The Evangelist Church. 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 'The Four Seasons'.

The concert features breathtaking feats of virtuosity from violinist sensation, Fenella Humphreys and 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 many times for the British Royal Family as well as with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and recently became the first British pianist to perform Chopin’s complete solo piano 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. Classic FM described him as 'Stunning'.

So why not treat yourself to a Christmas Special and join us for an afternoon of uplifting music to remember at St John The Evangelist Church, performed by this the sensational Piccadilly Sinfonietta, making their Edinburgh debut.
