Chorus sings with Sheffield born mezzo soprano
12th February 2018
The Chorus was thrilled to join Sheffield-born mezzo soprano Anna Harvey and three other wonderful soloists in a packed-out performance of Mozart’s Requiem at the City Hall on Saturday 5th February. Anna, a former student at Tapton School in Sheffield, graduated from Cambridge in 2009 and now sings with the Welsh National Opera. Fresh from a stunning performance at the Bridgewater Hall, Anna tweeted ‘I’m very excited to be repeating the programme in my home city with Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus at Sheffield City Hall. Last time I stood on this stage I was 13 singing with my youth choir!’
The performance was excitingly led by charismatic French Canadian conductor Jean-Claude Picard, and featured the highly-acclaimed Manchester Camerata as well as impressive soloists soprano Ailish Tynan, tenor Nicholas Mulroy and baritone Peter Harvey. A pre-concert talk enabled early arrivals to sort out myth from fact about Mozart’s final work, cut short by his untimely death at the age of 35.
