Christmas String Quartet Concert At St Martin-in-the-Fields Church

By vaughan • 29th December 2011 • Posted in: Manor House Music Concerts and recitals

On Boxing Day, the Manor House String Quartet were delighted to be invited to perform in one of London’s finest Churches for classical music – St Martin-in-the-Fields, located in Trafalgar Square. The concert was held at lunchtime, with free entrance and donations to the many good causes supported by St Martin’s.

Having a concert of Christmas carols arranged for string quartet was in many ways ideal because although Boxing day is still well within the Christmas period, many audience members commented that they’d heard plenty of carols sung in the last couple of weeks but had particularly enjoyed hearing refreshing instrumental versions.

Here is a video of us performing the ‘Carol Of The Bells’ for string quartet:

We performed a mixture of pieces from our two albums and received a warm response from the audience, many of whom were tourists visiting the UK over the Christmas period. Plenty of concert goers purchased our CDs as a souvenir and expressed delight at the inventiveness of our arrangements.

We very much hope to return to St Martin’s again and this was a perfect end to our series of Christmas concerts for 2011.
