The Classic Buskers (formerly The Cambridge
Buskers) have a knack of communicating their passion for classical
music in two of the best ways possible – virtuosity and laughter.
The audience comes away from a Buskers' concert on a high.
Their virtuosity is staggering. It's a great show for those who know
a little about classical music (listen out for an endless stream of
musical jokes) or indeed for anybody who simply appreciates wit and
wants to be entertained.
Technical virtuosity, combined with musical seriousness, humour and
high entertainment are a perfect recipe – the audience were
delighted.” Ian Ritchie, City of London Festival, February 2009.

2009's Festival Climax - Carmina Burana
For the first time at Lanercost, a professional
orchestra will accompany the 80 strong Festival Chorus and soloists
in a performance of Handel’s magnificent oratorio.
The Priory has wonderful acoustics, and with our new, much larger
stage, we were able to put on a thrilling performance of Carmina
Burana last year. If you thought that sounded good, come and hear
our most ambitious concert yet.
Book early because this is going to be a stunner!
With: Susan Jordan - Soprano; Louise Collette - Metzo Soprano; Adam Crewe - Alto;
Austin Gunn - Tenor; Jonathan Millican - Bass. Skipton Camerata - Conducted
by Anthony Peacock.
