Ieuan (who has a gorgeous, warm, baritone voice) applied to audition for us in December and we thought we would take the opportunity to showcase his talents alongside colleagues from the Royal Northern College of Music in a programme of arias and ensemble pieces from the operatic repertoire.

The RNCM is noted for its award-winning annual opera productions and semi-staged opera excerpts. There is always a wealth of talent and strong, dramatic personalities in the RNCM’s School of Vocal Studies and Opera, and this will be a lively, and excellently and confidently presented concert.
