Milly Forrest Live in Concert at Wells Cathedral

Friday 10th September 2021
“Forrest, with her silvery tone, sounded exquisite… and was breath-taking at the close as her voice floated heavenwards”
The Guardian




Join Wells Cathedral for a fantastic evening of opera arias and other music sung by classical soprano, Milly Forrest, accompanied by Hamish Brown, on Friday 10th September 2021.

About Milly:

Milly Forrest is a British-born classical soprano who trained at both the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal College of Music.

In 2017 Milly made headlines when she was plucked from her job as a cloakroom attendant to perform in the world-famous Wigmore Hall after another soprano was taken ill. Performing ensemble works by Franz Schubert and Ralph Vaughan Williams, she enthralled the audience with her “exquisite performance”.

In 2019 Milly won the Patricia Routledge English Song Competition, and in December 2020 Milly was awarded the Ferrier-Loveday Song Prize in the Kathleen Ferrier singing competition.

During the Pandemic, Milly has spent time working as a hospital porter supporting the work of the NHS.
