St. George’s Day Committee, Cayman Drama
Society benefits attract renowned opera singer
The day after having performed at
the Wharf in a benefit event organised by the St. George’s Day Committee to
raise money for its programme for at-risk children, international opera singer
Lisa Carlisle will perform in a special Mother’s Day concert (Sunday, 8 May).
The Welsh soprano, famous for her extensive
repertoire of opera, classical, musical theatre, light jazz and romantic songs,
will be accompanied on stage by Fran McConvey (piano), Sue Horrocks (flute) and Kate Allenger (violin).
fundraising tea party starts at 4pm along with the bar. Ms Carlisle will open
with a 20-minute set. A traditional English tea will be available at 4.30pm,
with a selection of cut sandwiches, pastries and teas.
Carlisle will close out with another 20-minute set after the tea party. She
will sing Summer Time; O Mio Bambino; I Will Never Love Again (written by Chuck
and Barrie Quappie for local play Magna Carta written by Colin Wilson); Nelly
Fantasia and several more songs.
The proceeds of the Mother’s Day concert will mainly
go towards the expansion of Cayman Drama Society’s theatre-based,
children-focused community activities.
Carlisle’s recent UK appearances include at the Welsh Millennium Centre in
Cardiff, Wales; Pinewood Studios in Hertfordshire, England; The Mandarin Hotel,
Knightsbridge and the Designer Wedding show in London, England.
Admission to Sunday’s Mother’s Day concert and tea
party is $20 (Adults) and $5 (children younger than 12).
