Church booking for Tube buskers
Angelina Kalahari, Richard Stevenson and Professor Elizabeth Dockrell-Tyler
The trio will play classics in church
Two talented London Underground buskers are leaving their pitch to perform at a famous concert venue.

Soprano Angelina Kalahari accompanied by guitarist Richard Stevenson are performing with piano professor Elizabeth Dockrell-Tyler.

They are taking part in An Evening of Enchanting Classics at St James's Church on Friday evening.

Both have been busking on the Tube since London Underground introduced their licensing scheme in 2003.

Ms Kalahari said: "Performing at St James's Church, such an eminent and popular venue, is really a dream come true.

"It will be an experience we will cherish forever.

"World- famous musicians such as classical guitarist John Williams have performed there so it is truly an honour for us."

Steve Charlick, from London Underground, said: "Their fantastic success demonstrates that the quality of the music we offer passengers on the Underground is at an all time high and we have witnessed several similar success stories."
