Talented young singers from Mid Wales Opera are giving you the chance to join them for an evening of magical music, they say.

The Friends of MWO’s popular summer concert will take place in the glorious setting of the Music Room at Gregynog near Newtown on Sunday July 21, starting at 6pm.

The event showcases talented young singers from across Wales, including a selection of operatic treats - and a long interval to explore the Hall’s beautiful grounds.

The evening will once again be led by superb pianist Charlotte Forrest, who has spent the last 10 years on the staff at Opera North, as well as being a visiting member of music staff at Glyndebourne, ENO, Grange Park and Festival Operas, Garsington Festival, Longborough, Opera Holland Park, Birmingham Opera Company, Buxton Festival, Aldeburgh Music, and the Royal Opera House.

Soprano Angharad Davies graduated from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama was previously part of MWO’s production of Handel’s Semele, soprano Rhiannon Ashley and bass Emyr Jones, both students at the Royal Northern College of Music, performed in MWO’s Spring’s production of Dido and Aeneas.

The event is also a great opportunity to hear about Mid Wales Opera’s coming season with a SmallStages tour of Mrs Peachum’s Guide to Love and Marriage, based on John Gay’s The Beggar’s Opera, opening in November and a tour of Mozart’s enduring classic The Marriage of Figaro in Spring 2020 in partnership with Ensemble Cymru and the Wales International Academy of Voice.

Funds raised at the event support MWO’s education work, taking performers into schools across Montgomeryshire, which reached 980 children in 10 schools earlier this year.

Tickets cost £15 and are available from Hafren, Newtown on 01686 614555 or email boxoffice@thehafren.co.uk - details at www.thehafren.co.uk.
