The Big Christmas Wind Orchestra and Choir 2019

All singers, wind and brass players are invited to come together in one big afternoon of Christmas tunes and carols. We want everyone to get involved, from total beginners through to experienced performers, and we guarantee London's biggest performing experience this Christmas! Over 250 musicians joined us last year, and this festive extravaganza promises to be the biggest yet!

Who we are:

The Big Christmas Wind Orchestra was formed in 2012 by friends who wanted to bring a few performers together for a grand Christmas play-through; it was so successful that we carried on and grew and grew! Conducted by Matthew Hardy, musicians from London and around the UK come together in an annual performance. We mix amateurs and professionals, with a real focus on (re-)introducing people into making music through an enormous, inspirational event.

On the day:

We perform for three hours at the iconic Spitalfields Christmas Market under the white canopy in Bishop's Square.

Any musician is welcome, regardless of ability, and no rehearsal is required - we'll provide the sheet music to play Christmas carols and tunes that are accessible to everyone. Simply register here, and then turn up on the day with your instrument or voice, some warm clothing and Christmas decorations!
