9th August: Lunchtime Concert – “Opera Desserts!”

fb_event_buttonIn the second of our August season of lunchtime concerts we’ll be offering you a delicious selection of grand opera and operetta excerpts, with arias, duets and ensembles from composers including Verdi, Mozart, Handel and Sullivan. There’ll be an Italian flavour to the proceedings, which will culminate in a performance of the famous Rigoletto Quartet.

As ever volunteers from The Green Backyard will be ensuring it’s not just your ears that are catered for – our café will be open from noon for the hour before the concert. Admission is free, but if you can afford it, a donation of around £4 is appreciated as it helps us to cover our costs.

Our singers will be:

Alison Charlton-West Soprano
Liz Williams Mezzo soprano
Mark Ellse Tenor
John Barratt Baritone

Katherine Wishart will provide a piano accompaniment.
