Our wonderful performance of Mendelssohn’s Elijah as our last concert was not only a very memorable event but was also a virtual sell out! However, we are busy preparing for our next concert now which will be this Saturday May 18th and held in Eye Town Hall.
We are holding the concert in an informal setting with the audience seated at round tables rather than in the usual ranks of chairs. Wine will be available for purchase by the bottle – before the concert and during the interval, and nibbles will be on your table for when you arrive. If you wish to supplement this with snacks of your own, please feel free to do so.
We will be joined by Lisa Cassidy (Soprano) whom many will remember has sung with us before, perhaps most notably in the Will Todds, Mass in Blue which we also performed in Eye Town Hall. The following information is taken from her interesting Bio:
Lisa Cassidy has gained an international reputation for both the singular beauty of her voice and her striking theatrical presence. Her recent work ranges from developing and performing contemporary classical works in Spain with Vertixe Sonora Ensemble to Opera and Steel as part of the Something Raw Festival at the Frascati Theatre in Amsterdam. She was principle soloist in Undead and Other Tales in the Block Universe Festival at the Royal Academy of Art and, in 2018 alone, appeared in five prestigious Music Festivals as well as in concert at the Red House in Aldeburgh with the pianist, Somi Kim. Lisa also has considerable experience in Oratorio and Song, which she performs throughout the UK, recently appearing in the William Alwyn Festival in Aldeburgh with the actress, Eleanor Bron and the award winning violinist, Fenella Humphries. She received her Masters Degree with Distinction, is graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and also a Britten Pears Young Artist. Lisa’s ideal is for her music to be a journey towards connection and unity, summed up beautifully by Robert Henri: ‘The object isn’t to make art, it is to be in a that wonderful state which makes art inevitable.’ www.lisacassidy.org
We are pleased too that our popular and very talented accompanist Karen Smith, also features in the programme with an individual performance.
We look forward to seeing you this Saturday!
