MK proms in the Park- Soloists announced

Over 1500 tickets have already been sold for the upcoming Proms in the Park at Campbell Park next Friday 15th August. It's set to be a great evening of entertainment presented by the parks Trust and Milton Keynes Orchestra, with uplifting music, fireworks and fizz.

The soloists have now been announced, and under the baton of MKCO, founder Hilary Davan Wetton, the Orchestra will be joined on stage by two wonderful soloists. These will be: James Cleverton, a baritone who is in great demand across the globe and has sung in well-known roles in operatic productions and in concert for spectacular concerts in locations including the Royal Albert Hall and other key venues. Also, soprano Emily Haig will be performing, who was at the MK Proms last year and wowed the crowds with her beautiful voice and charming performance. 

James will perform the witty Largo al factotum from the Barber of Seville and the rousing Toreador song from Carmen. Emily will r perform Vissi d’arte from Tosca and You’ll never walk alone from Carousel. They will duet in the seductive La ci darem la mano from Don Giovanni and lead the chorus of Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory.

The Orchestra will play the classic Dambusters march and the Can Can, to name just two, and there will be a fantastic firework display to end the night. It's definitely one not to be missed! Look out for another blog coming your way onThursday with more information.
