James is an experienced soloist singing mostly in Yorkshire and the surrounding area. He gave a series of lunchtime recitals throughout 2017, including in York, Northallerton and Boston Spa. Other recent performances include as bass soloist in Messiah at Huddersfield Parish Church. In 2016 James won Rosebowls at the Mrs Sunderland and Rothwell Festivals, along with the Victor Ludorum Senior Singing Shield at the Cottingham Methodist Church Festival.
Having graduated from Hull University with a first class degree in Music in 2004, Claire teaches singing, flute and music theory privately, in schools and for the Yorkshire Young Musicians project. She enjoys performing flute recitals with pianist Sue Finn. Claire is delighted to be returning to Allegro, having fond memories of performing here as a teenager with the late Allan King, to whom this concert is dedicated.
We welcome back John Elliot, a magnificent example of a musician who has developed his expertise to an extraordinary standard later in life. He could be a role model for many of us!
One of the purposes and joys of Allegro Appassionato is to provide a venue and encouragement for early performances by young musicians. Jane's piano pupils star today.
