An Evening with Sir Willard White
27 October 2019 @ 4:30 pm
“Pity anyone who appears on the same platform as baritone Willard White. He has so much presence he can eclipse an entire symphony orchestra and chorus with a mere twitch of an eyebrow.” The Guardian
We are absolutely thrilled to welcome one of the best-loved and most versatile opera stars of the last 40 years, Sir Willard White. His illustrious career has taken him to the most prestigious opera houses and concert halls throughout the world, collaborating with conductors, directors and orchestras of the highest calibre.
Taking a break from his role as Jupiter in Orpheus and the Underworld at ENO, Willard is presenting a very special, intimate concert accompanied by a regular visitor to Selwood, Eugene Asti who chose our beautiful Steinway piano. They will be singing repertoire by Schubert, Vaughan-Williams, Britten and Copland and a selection of songs from the shows by Rogers and Hammerstein, Cole Porter and George Gershwin.
