Cream Teas and March Music

February 14, 2016 — 52 Comments

This weekend I have had a lovely time with my family who visited me in Glasgow. We spent most of the weekend walking up a good appetite and discovering new places. It was very picturesque, especially due to the snow falling. However it didn’t stick and we were greeted today with some glorious sunshine. My younger brother Thomas was competing in Leeds in a Latin and Ballroom event with his association from Glasgow University. They all did superbly and Thomas got into the Ballroom semi-final and the Latin quarter-final. I wish them all the best of luck for nationals in Blackpool at the end of the month!

On the 17th March 2016, alongside my year group (fourth year Batchelor of Music students) at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, we will be performing scenes from operas. I have been chosen to sing Fiordiligi in the humorous Cosi Fan Tutte Act 1 finale . I am really looking forward to staging rehearsals next week! I hope to get some shots and I will share what we get up to and the context of the scene 🙂  The tickets are £7.50 and rehearsals are going well.

On the 18th March 2016, George Todica and I are performing at the South Hill Park Arts Centre in Reading, a selection of beautiful art songs, piano and piano/voice. We are really looking forward to this performance.

Russell Lomas and I will be performing on the 30th March 2016 in a concert at Walton Hall, Warrington at 7:45 to 9:30pm with Elliot Gresty (clarinet) and Meera Maharaj (flute). The concert has been organised for previous prizewinners of the Warrington Young Musician of the Year. It will be wonderful to be reunited with these two fabulous musicians and I am excited to hear their progress and see how much they have achieved since we last met.
