A special concert
Posted on 20 December 2010
Foundation trustee Stephen Dee now resident in the UK reports on a special concert he attended recently in London – ‘On November 25 I had the privilege of attending a superb concert given by three young New Zealand sopranos, including two who have been working with the Foundation. Going by the name ‘Alaudiae’ (see www.alaudiae.com) , Carleen Ebbs, Claire Egan and Miranda Westcott performed a programme ranging from Bach, Handel, Rossini and Schubert to de Falla and Barber. These talented women were supported by a wonderful orchestra of young musicians. The concert took place in a delightful church in Hampstead, and was very well attended. The organisation, programming, marketing and presentation of the concert was really well done, showing that these talented young artists are not short of gumption and courage, not to mention glamour, as the accompanying photo testifies.
