Bach UnwrappedWith their 'unwrapped' series, concert hall Kings Place puts the spotlight on one composer; in 2012 it was Brahms, and in 2013 it's the turn of Johann Sebastian Bach. The Bach Unwrapped series is their largest annual series to date with over 70 concerts, interactive events and study days planned. Kicking things off on Sunday 30th December 2012, the early music ensemble Florilegium perform suitably seasonal cantatas. The year-long programme comes to a close on Saturday 21st December 2013 with the Clare College Choir, Cambridge, singing Bach's Mass in B minor. In between we have a huge choice of chamber music, recitals, study days, fun family concerts and interactive events to take part in. There's even a section dedicated to Bach, Jazz and Beyond where leading lights from the jazz world bring a whole new approach to music by the German master.

About Kings Place

Just 150 metres from King's Cross and St Pancras stations and with a waterside setting, the Dixon-Jones designed Kings Place combines the offices of The Guardian newspaper with a concert hall and two art galleries. As you'd expect from the architects behind the recent improvements to the Royal Opera House and National Portrait Gallery it's a well designed complex of curvaceous surfaces and appealing public spaces.
