Coffee, Croissant and a Concert

This show has now passed. This is a an archive page.



Join us for coffee, pastries and an hour of classical music in our sensational series of Sunday socials. 

Ostara was born during lockdown, when four local musicians - Judith Busbridge, Penny Driver, Sijie Chen, Lucy Waterhouse - formed an ensemble with a string quartet at its core, playing in the street to lift the spirits of their Finsbury Park neighbours. After gaining a following for their N4 Doorstep Concerts, the quartet moved a few doors down to Park 200 where they are now delighted to be presenting a new series of classical concerts. 
The ensemble includes some of London’s top chamber musicians – between them they are regulars at the Royal Opera HouseLondon Symphony OrchestraLondon Mozart Players and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment – and, they’ll be inviting some esteemed musicians to join them in these eclectic programmes. 

Each 60-minute concert includes well-loved chamber works together with some shorter, contrasting pieces – all played in a relaxed vibe, and perfect for the whole family. Join us for an uplifting, cultural Sunday morning while enjoying coffee with friends.
