The City of Oxford Orchestra has invited me back to appear with them in their swan song next year. The Viennese New Year Concert in 2015 will be their last, and my fourth appearance with this glorious group. We had them laughing in the aisles of the Sheldonian this year with Strauss under Stephen Bell.
We have opened to great reviews at Central Saint Martins! Claire Seymour of Opera Today said: “As Eurydice, soprano Pamela Hay revealed a glittering upper register and strong, varied characterisation, capable of both the intensity and insouciance that the different settings require. The sweetness of her tone and elegance of phrase garnered much pity for Eurydice.” Please click here for full review.
English Pocket Opera performed live on BBC Radio 3′s “In Tune” programme on 16 January, to discuss our upcoming production of Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice. I sang Euridice’s aria “Che fiero momento” with Musical Director Philip Voldman at the piano. You can now hear our appearance on the BBC iPlayer. Please visit here to listen, until Thursday 23rd January.
