Sunday May 7th 2017

“A Night at the Opera” . . . that’s what we called this, our last concert of the season and, as you might expect, it featured a heady-mix of well-loved arias and overtures from the world of opera – works by Verdi, Puccini, Rossini, Mozart, Bizet and more. A quartet of stars from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Svetlina Stoyanova, Charlotte Drummond, Richard Shaffrey and Chris Nairne, lead on the arias accompanied throughout by the outstanding Stirling Orchestra – finalists in last year’s BBC Series “All Together Now.” It was quite an evening!

Soloists: Svetlina Stoyanova, Charlotte Drummond, Richard Shaffrey and Chris Nairne

Leader: Joëlle Broad
