Young Sopranos showcase their talent

Eastbourne will be showcasing the vocal talents of two young sopranos when they join the town’s choral society later this month for its Autumn concert.

Soprano Andrea Tweedale will be taking on two Mozart pieces when she sings the solo in Laudate Dominum, and also the soprano part in the composer’s Coronation Mass in C.

Her past performances include Haydn’s The Seasons, Handel’s Messiah and Brahms’ Requiem but, when not singing, she is studying at the Royal Northern College of Music and has just completed her first year of the two year Masters programme.

For Mozart’s Coronation Mass, Andrea will be joined by young London-based mezzo-soprano Clara Kanter, who performs as a consort and choral singer with a number of diverse vocal ensembles. Clara has also performed on numerous film soundtracks for London Voices, and recorded for BBC World Service Radio.

Completing the quartet will be two experienced male singers whose talents have been honed closer to home – West Sussex-born tenor Nick Pritchard and baritone Stephen Charlesworth, who lives near Ashdown Forest.

The 100-strong Eastbourne Choral Society will be completing the vocal line up with Mozart’s beautiful Ave Verum, and then Haydn’s Te Deum, under the baton of Musical Director John Hancorn. Tickets are now on sale for the concert, which takes place at 7.30pm on Saturday 30th November 2013, at All Saints’ Church, Grange Road, Eastbourne.

Tickets are priced at £12 and are available in advance from Eastbourne Tourist Information Centre in Cornfield Road, Eastbourne, or at the door.
