On Sunday 12th April 2015
in the Birch Hotel
Lewes Road, Haywards Heath


We were entertained by:-
"The Magic of Menezes"


the brother and sister team of
David Menezes (tenor) and
Elizabeth Menezes (soprano)

Accompanied by Rosemary Ward

 


Christine and Bill Colbourne saw them as Alexis and Aline in Oxford University's Sorcerer at Buxton several years ago, and they impressed them then. David has sung for us before, as a last-minute substitute for Stephen Brown.


David studied Classics at St. Hugh's College, Oxford, (spending most of his time there singing G & S) then did a postgraduate certificate in performance at the Royal College of Music. Since then he has established himself as a principal tenor with a number of opera companies, both here and abroad. Elizabeth studied Classics and French at St. John's College, Oxford, and Singing at Trinity College of Music. Thereafter she joined Carl Rosa Opera and toured Australia, New Zealand, America and Canada with them, playing several G & S soprano roles. She has sung in grand opera, and is also a professional violinist.
