The ensemble, like all professional musicians, has been hard hit by the pandemic, with bookings cancelled or postponed. Nick said: “2020 has presented a whirlwind of emotions and it is been great to focus on a positive venture. We are thrilled to present this year’s Nut-Cracking Christmas Concert in aid of Barnardo’s.”
The event has been made possible through a partnership with streaming company TicketCo TV. To book visit https://korrosensemble.ticketco.events/uk/en/e/korros_ensembles_nutcracking_christmas_concert
