Event Price: Free

Mezzo-soprano, Clare Presland, will perform a lunchtime recital on 26 February as part of City Music Society's lunchtime concert series. Deemed a 'major young artist with the potential to make an international impact,' Clare Presland was the 2014 Royal Philharmonic Society Susan Chilcott Award winner. Already a regular soloist at the Royal Opera House and English National Opera, Clare has appeared recently in Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk and The Force of Destiny at ENO. Alongside this busy operatic career, Clare enjoys many engagements as a soloist and is a particularly gifted singer of English song such as the examples heard today. Simon Lepper is undoubtedly one of the most distinguished piano accompanists working in the UK today. His long list of collaborators includes Mark Padmore, Angelika Kirchschlager, Christopher Maltman and Elizabeth Watts.
