THE BEACON Museum will burst into festive song this Sunday when pianist Anna Tilbrook and singers perform show tune classics and Christmas medleys.
The museum is running the event in collaboration with Rosehill Theatre’s Rosehill on the Road programme. It will start at 3pm in the Harbour Gallery on December 8.
The Beacon Museum’s Business Development Manager, Alan Irwin, said: “Anna is one of Britain’s most exciting pianists, with a considerable reputation in song recitals and chamber music.”
Having studied at York University and the Royal Academy of Music with Julius Drake, Anna made her debut at London’s Wigmore Hall in 1999 and has since become a regular performer at Europe’s major concert halls and festivals. She has won many international honours for her accompaniment and collaborated with leading singers and instrumentalists.
At the event Anna will be accompanied by young singers Kirsty Mclean and Glen Cunningham. Cumbrian Kirsty has won many performance awards and reached the finals of several national competitions. Glen, from the Scottish Highlands, has a first-class honours degree from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and a master’s from the Royal College of Music. He is now studying at the Royal College of Music’s prestigious Opera Studio.
Mr Irwin added: “We are greatly looking forward to hosting this Christmas celebration of music with Anna, Kirsty and Glen. The event promises to be a relaxing and fun afternoon, and can be combined with a visit to the museum and Santa’s grotto for younger visitors.
“There are also hearty festive food offerings available in the Green Room’s pop-up restaurant in the Beacon Portal. The pop-up restaurant will also continue over the following two weekends, December 14/15 21/22.”
