Britain’s most popular soprano will be at The Octagon Theatre in Yeovil, for an evening of song, reminiscence, and chat. Lesley will tell of her behind- the-scenes stories which will give audiences an insight into her life on the stage. With over 30 years of experience performing in the worlds of opera, musicals, television, radio, and concerts, Lesley has won both critical acclaim and the affection of music lovers and fans from across the world.

“Lesley Garrett is a singing whirlwind. She sweeps fans in her wake and gives them the exciting ride they want.” - BBC Music Magazine

“A natural effervescent and powerhouse voice” - Financial Times

“She cares about the people who come to hear her sing .... Through her records and her unstuffy attitude to singing, she has clearly reached out to music lovers far beyond the rarified confines of the opera house.” - Sunday Times

Accompanying Lesley will be Anna Tilbrook, who is one of Britain’s most exciting pianists, with a considerable reputation in song recitals and chamber music. She made her debut at the Wigmore Hall in 1999 and has since become a regular performer at Europe’s major concert halls and festivals, as well as coaching regularly for the Royal Opera, Covent Garden.
