About the event

After several false starts and Covid cancelled concerts, we finally got to welcome the mezzo-soprano, Mae Heydorn and her accompanist, Anthony Roberts, to The Birch Hotel on 26th September to give us an afternoon's entertainment  -  and what an afternoon!

Mae, who has performed with Glyndebourne, ENO and, of main relevance to us, the National Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company gave us a wide and varied selection of music and the occasional poem. Along with some of her best known contralto songs, she sung Phoebe's “When maiden loves” and some all-time classics such as “Moon River”. During the first half, we were even treated to a number of the bass / baritone solos all sung in their original key!

Before she was allowed to leave, we all enjoyed, as an encore, Mad Margaret's song from act 1 of Ruddigore.

This was her first visit to us but I am sure it will not be the last!
