We are apologising for changing our usual recital evening from a Sunday afternoon to early Monday evening. We do hope this does not cause any inconvenience. We are giving you plenty of notice, so pop it in your diary now. Monday 07 September 2015 at 6:00pm.
Bianca Andrew is back in New Zealand for her European summer break. She has been in great demand for this period and did not have a Sunday left before she returns to London.
We did not want you all to miss out on this extremely talented and charming young artist. She is following in the footsteps of Tom Atkins who is just finishing his year as a full Scholarship Awardee on the Guildhall Opera Studies programme. Incidentally, Tom went on to win the prestigious Gold Medal award and become one of the “hottest’ young singers in London as a result.
Bianca is also an awardee of the Guildhall Opera Studies programme for 2016/17. She indeed is worthy of such an aware being intellectually and musically extraordinary with a lovely mezzo sound. We urge you not to miss this recital. Also moving on a couple of months, our own Martin Snell of Bayreuth fame. He will deliver a small master class on Sunday 01 November 2015 at the usual time 5.00pm for 5:30pm. He will paint an accurate picture of how the young singers life will be and how best to cope. He will also sing for us.
We do have a couple of other events which we are just working on now. We look forward to seeing you on:
Monday 07 September 2015 at 6:00pm
A concert with Bianca Andrew
Sunday 01 November 2015 at 5:00pm for 5:30pm
A concert with Martin Snell
Great news of Pene Pati
He was a finalist in both sections of the great Operalias competition in London. You may already know that this is Placido Domingo’s worldwide singing competition and that it is divided into two parts! One is the Aria competition and the other is the Zarzuela (or Spanish song) competition. Pene is a finalist in BOTH of these! Pene placed second in Aria competition and won the audience prize.
Isabelle Moore placed second in McDonald Aria competition last weekend and is a finalist in Bel Canto competition in a few weeks’ time.
