Masterclass

Acclaimed British mezzo-soprano Kathryn Rudge and Grammy Award-winning pianist Christopher Glynn give a masterclass for selected student singers and pianists.

Song Day 2022

Our 2022 Song Day programmes are devised by pianist and festival director, Christopher Glynn, who is joined by four outstanding young singers in two concerts plus an afternoon masterclass with selected student singers and pianists. The first concert explores the response of composers to the world of Shakespeare in settings of texts from his plays and sonnets. Richard Strauss’s life-long love of the female voice is the focus of the evening programme with songs from his childhood through to the sublime trio from Der Rosenkavalier. All in all, a truly memorable musical day!
