Helen Charlston (mezzo-soprano) & Sholto Kynoch (piano) – Sunday 30 April
30 April 2023 at 12:00pm£12.50 – £17.50
We are very sorry to announce that Alessandro Fisher is indisposed and will not be able to give his lunchtime concert in the Leamington Music Festival this Sunday.
We are delighted, though, that mezzo-soprano Helen Charlston has been able to step in at such short notice.
Hailed “a rather special mezzo” by Music Web International, Helen is a young artist increasingly in demand in the UK and abroad.
She won first prize in the 2018 London Handel Singing Competition and was a finalist in the 2019 Grange Festival International Singing Competition, won the Ferrier Loveday Song Prize in the 2021 Kathleen Ferrier Awards and is a BBC New Generation Artist.
Helen was a founder participant of the Rising Star of the Enlightenment programme, working alongside the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment; a member of Les Arts Florissants Young Artist Programme (Jardin des Voix) for 2021/22; and is a 2018 City Music Foundation Artist.
This does mean a change to the advertised programme however, and so Helen will instead be wowing us with the following:
Felix Mendelssohn Auf Flügeln des Gesanges
Felix Mendelssohn Schilflied
Felix Mendelssohn Die Liebende Schreibt
Fanny Mendelssohn Im Herbste
Fanny Mendelssohn Nach Süden
Schubert Vier Canzonen D688
Nathan James Dearden the way we go
Rebecca Clarke Down by the Salley Gardens
Dilys Elwyn-Edwards The Cloths of Heaven
Joshua Borin Nature is Returning
Stephen Bick On His Blindness
(£1 children / students)
