Cadogan Hall
London, SW1X 9DQ
7.30pm, 29th December 2017

Set in the heart of Chelsea, Cadogan Hall has become one of London’s leading music venues and the first choice for some of the UK’s top orchestras.

Currently it is the home of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the world famous BBC Proms Chamber Music Series. The Hall started its life, in 1907, as a New Christian Science Church, look for the beautifully restored stained glass windows, designed by Danish nobleman, Baron Arild Rosenkrantz who learnt his art at Tiffany, New York. By 1996 the congregation had dwindled so it was decided to sell the building and move to a smaller church. The Cadogan Estate bought the Hall in 2000, hence the name, and after extensive refurbishment, reopened in 2004 as the 950 seater, splendid and surprisingly intimate, music venue you see today.

Performers for 2017 are: 

Palm Springs High 'Spirit of the Sands' Symphonic Band & Visual Corps 

Libertyville High School Band

Palm Springs High 'PS Swings' Jazz Band

LeHigh University Marching 97

St John Smith Sq
London, SW1P 3HA
7.30pm, 29th December 2017

This magnificent example of English Baroque architecture is set in the middle of Smith Square, Westminster, and dates back to 1714. The church, St. John’s the Evangelist, took 14 years to build at a cost of £40,875, about £5.2M in today’s money.

The outstanding beauty of the building is matched by its exceptional acoustic, which attracts a stellar array of today’s leading international artists. St John’s was designed and built by Thomas Archer and has survived fire, lightning and bomb plots. It sustained a direct hit from an incendiary bomb the final night of the London Blitz in 1941 and left to ruin after the war. It was saved from becoming a car park by the local community who fund raised to buy the site and restore the church to the original designs. It re-opended in 1969 as a music venue and has gained the reputation as one of London’s finest concert halls.

Performers for 2017 are: 

The Hartford Union High School Orchestra

LNYDP at Trafalgar Square
Trafalgar Square London WC2N 5DN
12.30pm, 30th December 2017

This iconic site has been a public space since 1812 when architect John Nash laid out his plans for this area formally known as Charing Cross.

The square is named after the famous naval battle which took place at Cape Trafalgar, Spain where Admiral Nelson, proudly standing 5m, 16ft, above your heads atop his column lost his life in 1805. The fountains, lions, guarding the central granite obelisk, were added between 1838-1867. The square, with its surrounding famous galleries, continues today as one of capital’s cultural centres, where tourists and Londoners come together to celebrate annual festivals, holidays, take photos and watch outdoor performances throughout the year. Look out for the smallest police box ever built in the south-east corner of the square. The Christmas tree is an annual gift from the people of Norway since 1947.

Performers will be confirmed shortly, check back later this year for more information!
