Crypt Close-Ups: Christian-Pierre La Marca and Yaman Okur

Tuesday 23 April 2024

8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Grab a drink and get close-up to artists performing by candlelight in St Martin’s dramatic crypt. These informal concerts are immersive and atmospheric and are a great way to experience sublime music in a whole new way, in the intimate candlelit surroundings of the St Martin’s Crypt.

Yaman Okur is a French dancer specializing in freestyle street dance, crowned world champion in 2001 with the group Wanted Posse. He’s collaborated with many artists, including Madonna. During this performance, he interprets the soulful solo cello of Christian-Pierra La Marca. Hailed by Gramophone as ‘a master of his instrument and a ‘musician of lyrical elegance and good taste’ Christian Pierre La Marca has, in a few years, distinguished himself by his radiant presence in the world’s leading concert halls and his award-winning recordings.
