Fundraising concert for opera project – Opera Unwrapped Sunday 10 December

Yvonne Howard
‘Opera Unwrapped for Christmas’ is a rather special charity concert taking place at The Assembly House Norwich on Sunday 10th December.
The star of this concert is Mezzo Soprano, Yvonne Howard. Yvonne has regularly sung for the Royal Opera Covent Garden and English National Opera in the UK, and has also sung in the US, Japan, Brazil, Argentina and across Europe. Yvonne was in Norwich not too long ago with Opera North for their production of Carousel which toured to the Theatre Royal:
For Opera Unwrapped for Christmas, Yvonne is joined by four highly talented opera singers: Chris Turner, Timothy Connor, Marianne Vidal and Gethin Lewis. These artists are travelling from all over the UK to Norwich to perform in this concert.
What’s the fundraising for?
It’s to help Into Opera raise money for the children’s opera and education project which has been running in Norfolk since September called A King’s Ransom, involving 160 children, the composer Patrick Hawes and the Britten Sinfonia orchestra. The project aims to provide primary school children with a first encounter of opera which is exhilarating, engaging and empowering:
A King’s Ransom champions the importance of all children having access to a high quality cultural education. Through out work, we are also trying to illustrate the importance of creativity sitting at the heart of education across the entire academic curriculum.
