Opera star comes home
International opera star Jane Irwin will be performing a homecoming concert alongside the Blackpool Symphony Orchestra, on Saturday.
The soprano will be singing Samuel Barber’s ‘Knoxville: Summer of 1915’ at the concert at St Andrew’s Church, Rough Lea Road, Thornton.
The orchestra will also showcase their talent in a performance of Glinka’s rousing ‘Ruslan and Ludmilla’ overture, Britten’s suite for orchestra ‘Matinees Musicales’ and will conclude the evening with Glasunov’s tuneful and exciting second symphony.
Tickets are available online for £9 or £10 on the door. To book in advance, visit www.blackpoolsymphony.co.uk.
