St James´Church, 197 Piccadilly,
We are delighted to invite you to our first live event in London in quite a while, where we look forward to welcoming back members and friends for a special concert at St James’ Church in Piccadilly.
Come and hear talented British and Spanish musicians play in this beautiful church, which was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and consecrated in 1684.
The evening’s programme is directed by former BritishSpanish Society scholar and virtuoso violinist Nicole Crespo O´Donoghue, and also features cellist Laura Peribañez; guitarist and composer Gregory Sanders Gallego; and flautist Daisy Noton.
After the concert we invite you to stay for drinks, networking and a delicious selection of Spanish ham and cheese.
This is the big event of the BritishSpanish Society autumn calendar, so please invite your friends and family along – and we look forward to seeing you there!
