Experience the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse filled with the warm sounds of guitar music, as Xuefei Yang draws together an evening of winter songs.
Following performances at the Southbank Centre, Royal Albert Hall, Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, New York, Xuefei will perform a one-off, intimate concert in our candlelit playhouse to celebrate the winter season, reflect on the past and look to the future.
With a programme drawn from Ancient China, through Europe to Latin American and modern day composers, Xuefei will guide us on a journey to discover how music brings hope and joy, even in the coldest and darkest of seasons.
