I am looking forward to performing at a concert in Birkdale Village, Southport, to help raise funds for the new library. I will be accompanied by Angela Thompson. See diary for more details.
This week, I am proud to have relaunched the staff choir of Fortnum & Mason. After an open workshop and discussion event, rehearsals officially started this week. A strong group have already attended and the choir has an exciting future ahead!
A few thoughts and reflections on a fantastic week at the Glyndebourne Academy 2017;
I cannot even put into words how much I gained from this incredible experience. Working so intensively in such a challenging and supportive environment enabled me to learn much more about myself as a performer and as a person. I gained very useful and thoughtful feedback from all the coaches, who I feel so privileged to have met and worked with during the week. I am so proud of what I and all the participants achieved and feel so lucky to have got to know and work with such an amazing group of singers.
I am delighted to announce that I have been offered a place at the Glyndebourne Academy this year.
I will take part in an intensive study week, led by Mary King, exploring new repertoire and developing my performances skills at the renowned Glyndebourne Opera Festival.
I will be performing a lunchtime recital of Song and Opera excerpts on the 12th June at Midday. The performance will be held at Farnham United Reformed Church.
Visit The Spire Cafe in the church before or after the concert (open 10.00-2.00). The Central and South St carparks are less than a five minute walk to the venue.
Tickets: £5.00, available on the door. Free for children under 12.
I will be performing in Farnham’s Flash Festival this Spring. Details to follow in the coming weeks.
