Fundraising Gala Recital with Rosalind Plowright
We warmly invite you to enjoy an evening with Rosalind Plowright whose compelling and versatile performances have kept her among the top operatic stars during a career that spans 35 years. A frequent visitor to Covent Garden and The Metropolitan Opera New York Rosalind has enjoyed singing with "The Three Tenors", most notably Luciano Pavarotti at Covent Garden for a Gala Concert. Renowned conductors Claudio Abbado, Zubin Mehta and Bernard Haitink to name but a few have all enjoyed working with Rosalind on productions around the globe.
We are delighted that Rosalind will join the supporters of the Holburne and give this recital in our stunning Brownsword Gallery accompanied by Philip Mountford on our Steinway piano famously used by Rachmaninov whenever he performed in the UK. The proposed evening's programme will include some Rachmaninov songs as well as songs by Brahms, de Falla, Kurt Weill, Benjamin Britten, Frank Bridge and more.
This special event includes a welcome glass of champagne at 7pm in the Museum Garden Café and then on to the recital at 7.30pm. You are welcome to meet Rosalind for questions and conversation in the Garden Café after the end of the recital.
Places are limited therefore kindly secure your ticket at this fundraising event by sending a cheque made payable to The Holburne Museum to the contact below as soon as possible clearly stating your name and number of places required.
