Friday 10th September
19:00 - 21:00
Join Wells Cathedral for a fantastic evening of opera arias and other music sung by classical soprano, Milly Forrest, and accompanied by Pianist, Hamish Brown, on Friday 10th September 2021.
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.
“Forrest, with her silvery tone, sounded exquisite… and was breath-taking at the close as her voice floated heavenwards”
Please note: Tickets are banded, and seats will be allocated by the Cathedral accordingly to allow for households/bubbles to be sufficiently socially distanced from each other. Thank you for patience and understanding.
