When the going gets tough in the run-up to Christmas and you've had about as much seasonal music as you can take, with choirs in every available cathedral, church and hall - get yourself over to Aberdeen!  This is the moment to put down your last-minute Christmas shopping, gather your thoughts, and renew your emotional energy.

The concert features timeless works by monumental composers Beethoven, Gershwin and much more.  If you’re in need of a relaxing experience and want to learn more about classical music, or just want to hear virtuosic performances by one of the UK’s most brilliant pianists, this concert is just for you.

Award-winning concert pianist and a favourite performer for the British Royal Family, Warren Mailley-Smith, recently became the first British pianist to perform Chopin’s complete works from memory. An exceptional talent and a self-deprecating sense of humour, combined with his formidable technical skill and mature musicality, makes him a favourite with audiences.

So why not treat yourself to a spectacular evening and join us for a concert to remember of uplifting music at Queens Cross Church.
