LNYDP Festival Concert Series
St John's Smith Square
7.30pm, 30th December 2014

St. John's, Smith Square, in Westminster, is one of London's major concert venues and favourite historic buildings. Valued for its superb acoustics, it presents an extremely varied programme of classical music throughout the concert season, ranging from choirs and symphony orchestras to solo instrumental recitals.

Designed by Thomas Archer and built in 1728, St. John's is one of the finest examples of English Baroque architecture and is considered a masterpiece of this style. As Sir Hugh Casson has said of St. John's "just to come across it in that quiet square is an event. To enter it, to enjoy its spaces, to listen to fine music within its walls is an experience not to be matched in conventional concert halls and is a lasting tribute to the man who designed it.
