Rowan Pierce, soprano & Peter Manning, Conductor
LUX sponsors a charity evening of music by candlelight with some starry guests at a palatial setting in London’s Chelsea.
The Bath Festival Orchestra (BFO) gave an intimate recital to an audience including some of London’s most significant philanthropists in the State Apartments at the Royal Hospital Chelsea.
Star act was soprano Rowan Pierce, who entranced the audience with a rendition of Deh Vieni from Le Nozze di Figaro. Sipping some Nyetimber sparkling wine before and after the recital, the audience, there to support the BFO, was enraptured.
