New Year Celebration with Southern Pro Musica

New Year Celebration with Southern Pro Musica

Sunday, January 14, 2018 - 19:30

Following the great success of their last two New Year concerts, Southern Pro Musica is back with a fizz, and is delighted to be joined once again by much-loved soprano Bibi Heal and leading tenor Nicholas Sharratt for an uplifiting evening of opera and ballet music in celebration of the New Year.

Enjoy your favourite Tchaikovsky music from ‘Swan Lake’ and ‘The Sleeping Beauty’, sparkling orchestral overtures by Verdi and Nicolai and the beautifully haunting violin solo of Massanet’s ‘Meditation’. Bibi Heal will return to sing great opera arias – this time in partnership with leading tenor Nicholas Sharratt, who will sing everyone’s favourite aria by Puccini ‘Nessun Dorma’. Under the skillful baton of esteemed Artisitc Director and Conductor Jonathan Willcocks, the performance is sure to thrill Guildford's concert-goers.

The critics love Southern Pro Musica's performances and so will you: "Southern Pro Musica’s ‘New Year Concert’, in front of a full house, was a triumph…From the outset, the orchestra was attentive and alert, bursting with irrepressible energy." New Year Concert January 2017, Surrey Advertiser.
