Enjoy a taste of summer delights to come with the Buckingham Summer Festival Winter Concert.

Members of the Orchestra of Stowe Opera and conductor Robert Secret will be joined by three outstanding soloists in their concert at Buckingham’s Radcliffe Centre on Saturday, January 24.

Soprano Helen Massey will sing Mozart’s concert aria Exsultate Jubilate.

Helen delighted audiences as Susanna in Stowe Opera’s highly acclaimed production of The Marriage of Figaro at Winslow Hall.

Last November she was the soprano soloist in a performance of The Verdi Requiem to a packed Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford with the Orchestra of Stowe Opera and the Oxford harmonic Choir, conducted by Robert Secret.

Craig Greene is soloist in Mozart’s A major Piano Concerto.

Much in demand as a concert soloist, this talented pianist need no introducion to Buckingham audiences, who flock to his concerts.

He has performed with leading orchestras and conductors and has won numerous prizes.

He will be performing Brahms’ 1st Concerto in the Gala Concert in the Summer Festival in July.

Christopher Redgate, the principal oboe in the Orchestra of Stowe Opera, will be performing the solo oboe part in the Mozart Divertimento K251.

Christopher is the Evelyn Barbirolli Research Fellow at the Royal Academy of Music and specialises in the performance of contemporary oboe music.

He has been described by Music Web as having ‘extraordinary exploratory technical brilliance’.

Tickets are on sale at £12 from the Tourist Information Centre at the Old Gaol or via www.buckinghamsummerfestival.org
