Celebrate Voice Festival is back for its magical Christmas celebration, with leading singers at Salisbury’s Medieval Hall for two performances on Thursday, 8th and Friday, 9th December at 7.30pm.
For its final showdown of the year, the popular festival returns to the enchanting Cathedral Close venue for the first time in three years, with Friday night’s performance almost sold out at the time of going to print.
Joining festival director, Lynsey Docherty and co-host, baritone Philip Smith will be hugely popular lyric tenor, Stephen Aviss (Cavaradossi 2019) and one of the UKs leading sopranos, Ellie Laugharne, straight from a UK tour with English Touring Opera, together with music director David Gostick.
The show also promises other exciting guest performers on the night.
Festival director, Lynsey Docherty said: “Following a brilliant festival in October we are delighted to return to this beautiful and historic venue.
“We know our audience love the Medieval Hall, especially at Christmas, and we have a fabulous, uplifting programme of opera, show songs and festive delights, with our ever popular audience participation and performances from youth singers and other guests.”
The festival enjoyed critically acclaimed sell-out shows with international performers, full workshops and participatory events for all ages last month.
“Despite the difficulties facing the arts, our audiences packed out the venue event after event, showing the support for quality music making and our festival.
“Happily, this has been carried through to our Christmas celebration, with one show already nearly sold-out. We are incredibly grateful to our fiercely loyal audience.” Docherty added.
