Kate O’Mara

Very sad to hear about the death of Kate O’Mara. Here we were together in 2010 at the Fairfield Halls, Croydon in a gala fundraiser for Marie Curie Cancer Care charity. She was in costume for a tribute to Marlene Dietrich, and I was singing “Glitter and Be Gay”. A shining light has gone out. DSC07973

Euridice at the Royal Albert Hall

Our performance of Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice was a big success at the Royal Albert Hall. With 2000 primary school children’s voices joining in all the choruses in 4-part harmony, to a packed-out hall, English Pocket Opera Company  fulfilled phase 4 of its remit to bring opera to children. The MC was Channel 4 news’ Jon Snow, and David Walliams gave a speech in his role as patron.Euridice RAH1
