Valentine Day Special Concert
Preparations are well in hand for our next concert - which happens to fall February 14th, Valentine's Day - so of course we could not pass up that opportunity. It was our first rehearsal last week and it is all going very well. The concert will feature various pieces associated with joys and travails of love both unrequited or otherwise!
Joining us will some wonderful young talent - Rebecca Taylor (piano), CÚline Forrest (soprano) and Oliver Johnston (tenor) - who are making quite a name for themselves on the stage. CÚline recently won a place through to finals of the Cardiff Singer of the World competition in 2015 representing Wales. Rebecca recently won the prestigious Accompanist Prize at the Maureen Lehane Vocal Awards 2014 at the Wigmore Hall in London. Oliver has recently been performing at Garsington Opera and at Glyndbourne in concerts with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
See our Concerts Page for more details. Tickets are selling well so the balcony has been opened for sale - please book your tickets to avoid disappointment!
We are thrilled that Internationally famed guitarist Craig Ogden (currently featured on Classic FM) will be coming to play the delicious Concierto de Aranjuez by Rodrigo. This will be next May, when we will also play some fun pieces by Richard Strauss and Shostakovich.
