Classic Buskers website

 

The Classic Buskers

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.

Handel’s Judas Maccabaeus

 

 
2009's Festival Climax - Carmina Burana

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.
