Anna joins the Orchestra of St Johns in a concert of operatic overtures, arias and duets. This concert celebrates the OSJ’s Young Artists scheme; current members and graduates of the highest quality perform timeless operatic favourites including the Seguidilla from Bizet’s Carmen. With full orchestral backing. We open with Johann Strauss II’s Die Fledermaus Overture. OSJ is committed to supporting young musicians and nurturing their talent. Our Young Artists scheme provides the opportunity for young musicians to flourish as soloists or conductors in the early stages of their careers, irrespective of background.
