The concert offers a snapshot of Samling Institute’s presence in the world of song and opera, with emerging talents, who may be making their debut in this renowned chamber music venue, performing alongside established stars. This year, we invite you to ‘Come into the Garden’ for an evening of song and poetry inspired by the language of flowers and the natural world, along with poetry read by the distinguished actor Sir Simon Russell Beale. Claire Lees is a young soprano who is already making a big impact with highly praised opera appearances at Ilford Arts and Opera Holland Park. Anna Stéphany is emerging as one of the world’s most exciting mezzo sopranos, who ‘radiates warmth and substance’, (The Guardian). Tenor Filipe Manu and baritone Dominic Sedgwick are recent Samling Artists, both of whom have been selected for the Royal Opera House’s prestigious Jette Parker Young Artists Programme. They are joined by two Samling Artist pianists who are both regulars at Wigmore Hall: Joseph Middleton, described by BBC Music Magazine as ‘one of the brightest stars in the world of song’, and the up-and-coming young accompanist and chamber musician Somi Kim.
