The Octagon Theatre is delighted to welcome back soprano Lesley Garrett for a special concert with trumpeter Crispian Steele-Perkins and Sinfonia Classica Orchestra. This concert promises to be a truly operatic finale to a wonderful classical concert series at The Octagon.
Lesley, Crispian and the Sinfonia Classica will be performing numerous classical works by Mozart, Bach, Handel and Haydn on Tuesday 15 April at 7.30pm. When asked about her programme, Lesley said, ”My program is very varied and demanding. There are some virtuoso arias which are very joyous and florid, like the Bach Alleluia, and then others which require great drama with intense legato, for instance Handel’s Lascia Ch’io Pianga. I think pacing the evening will be tough, as will matching the impossibly high performance standard of the orchestra! But then I love a challenge!”
Tickets for the production are £26, concessions are £24.50, children and students are £22 and Footlights Members will need to contact the Box Office.
Lesley said, ”Singing with the Sinfonia is an absolute joy. Making chamber music is a very special experience and I feel humbled and honoured to be performing with such extraordinary musicians. The quality of their playing is like no other I have ever heard. They listen to each other so acutely. I love standing among the players and feeling as if I am an instrument myself. I don’t really feel like a soloist, I feel as if the music we are making is much greater than the sum of its parts, and I am just one of those parts. It’s wonderful!”
