Lockdown Blog 31: On-this-day last year

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all keeping well!

It’s strange to think that at this time on this day in 2019 I was about to walk onto the stage at Wigmore Hall, London. How times have changed in just one year!

It was a really special day as the concert was broadcast live on Radio 3, my first live concert with the group.  There was certainly a mixture of excitement and nerves!

And the audience was full of friendly faces. I think almost everyone in the stalls was a close friend or family member of at least one member of the group. As the theatre is quite small and we mostly perform abroad, our friends and family rushed at the opportunity to hear us live without having to get on a plane.

It was also very special as I met two King’s Singers countertenor legends; Al and David!

Fingers crossed we can get back to performing live again soon :-)

Until the next time, and keep safe,
