31st July: Lunchtime Concert – Apollo Opera – “More Opera Gems”

For the second concert in our summer season of Tuesdays Till Two we’re delighted to welcome back Apollo Opera, for another concert of operatic treats.

The singers will be Shiona Cormack (Soprano), Jessica Lawrence-Hares (Mezzo-Soprano), Franco Kong (Baritone), and once again Kate Wishart will be providing the piano accompaniment.

They will be performing operatic arias, duets and trios including the beautiful ‘Presentation of the Rose’ From Richard Strauss’s ‘Rosenkavalier’, duets from Verdi’s ‘Rigoletto’ and Rossini’s ‘Barber of Seville’ and selections from ‘Carmen’.

As usual the café will be open from noon, serving a range of hot drinks and homemade quiche, cakes, scones etc. All profits from the café will go to The Green Backyard.

The concert will begin promptly at 1pm. Admission is free, but those who are able to afford it are asked to make a donation. The suggested amount is £5.
