Chester-Mar-2016-01

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Easter and I hope that you have had a fabulous time. I travelled home for the weekend along with my two brothers Matthew and Thomas to chill out and relax ahead of what is going to be a rather busy few months.

We braved the weather and had a walk around Chester which is beautiful old city close to where my parents live.  I have posted a few pictures of our day out to try and capture some of the history of the city but to really take it all in you just have to come and visit.

On Wednesday 30th March I will be performing alongside some old friends at Walton Hall in Warrington and if the rehearsals are anything to go by it will be a wonderful evening.

Walton-Hall-Concert There is plenty more to come and I will keep you posted as we get closer to each event.

I have posted a recent recording of “Quando M’en Vo” from Puccini’s “La Boheme” which I hope you enjoy listening too.

    What great fun! Glad you were able to spend Easter with your family and yes, this looks like some place I would enjoy visiting. Beautiful song, one of my favorites. ❤

    Happy Easter. It looks cold…

      It was a bit chilly Eric but luckily the rain held off for most of the visit. The old shops that have covered walkways are a great idea because you get fresh air and keep quite warm and it’s always nice to stand and watch the musicians and minstrels there. Sadly lots of the shops on the upper row that used to be full are now empty 😦

    Hi, A Happy Easter too! The photos are lovely… the town looks historic and interesting. Have a wonderful family time, Charlotte. 🙂

    I’ve always loved Chester. It would have been far better than the new Batman/Superman film which I watched this afternoon. Don’t let anyone talk you into going and seeing it, it would be more fun washing dirty dishes.

      Merci Pascal, we were really excited to be allowed to record some songs at the Edinburgh Society of Musicians recently, very grateful as their room is great and it’s nice to record with a grand piano.

    Happy Easter! The town looks gorgeous! I like old historic towns. Next time in the UK I’ll have to put it on the itinerary. I enjoyed the Puccini you posted. Good luck on your Wednesday performance.

      Thank you Trent, I’m singing a new song cycle at the concert so that’s always exciting, I’m pleased you enjoyed the Puccini I’ve enjoyed working on it.

    Dear Charlotte, Happy Easter! Chester is a very lovely place indeed. Especially as a background for a pretty lady’s photo.

    Beautiful. I am glad you are adding various musical pieces to your posts. I only know Chester because I read the Cadfael series. Can’t believe I drove all around it and never got there. Sniff.

      I’m glad you enjoyed my recording Dianne. It’s just a good excuse for another visit sometime. There’s a fabulous Designer Outlet village nearby in Ellesmere Port too. I got a couple of great bargains.

    Excellent pics, dear Charlotte… you look beautiful as always.
    I also enjoyed listening to “Quando M’en Vo” from Puccini’s “La Boheme”, great performance… Sending love and all my best wishes!. Aquileana 😀

    Happy (belated) Easter! 🙂
    Looks like you had fun in Chester. And those pictures really make me want to go visit!

    You look wonderful in Chester ~ what a special place, great photos…and of course what fantastic way to spend a Sunday listening to your voice. Wishing you a great spring ahead.

      My Dad’s iphone did a good job. Thank you for listening to my recording I’ve been working more on the song. I’m really enjoying Spring so far and the lighter nights are just super.

    love the pics so beautiful love the timber framed buildings

    • 

      Thank you, we really should look after some of our old heritage buildings more and not allow ugly replacement buildings. I’ve always liked the upper walkways and the hidden shops and little stairways.

        I agree with you those heritage buildings should be cared for and not let go. Me and my fiance are wanting to build us a timber framed house when we get our land. They are gorgeous.

    WHat a lovely smile and photos. I hope you had a wonderful Easter.

  28. 

    Really interesting developments in your voice, Charlotte, I find this very exciting.

  29. 

    What beautiful pictures! I love the one of you on Godstall Lane, Chester’s romantic heart. Now isn’t that fitting for an opera singer? Lovely post. A belated Happy Easter!

      I love red and pink, hence the trousers and trainers but I’m told they don’t go, so whenever I see them together I can’t resist a pic. There was a violinist playing and I wanted to join in from the balcony but I resisted.

      Best wishes
