Palmer­ston North tenor Te­hezib Lathiff is back in town to head­line the fi­nal Sun­day Globe Mati­nee Con­cert of the year on Sun­day.

The singer held his farewell con­cert in 2014 and then headed to Eng­land where he stud­ied at Guild­hall for a year.

Be­fore he left, Lathiff won the Mu­sica Viva Young Per­form­ers Schol­ar­ship with the sup­port of the Palmer­ston North Ro­tary Club, an award also won by opera singer Anna Leese.

‘‘I’m look­ing for­ward to the Mu­sica Viva con­cert and singing on the Palmer­ston North stage again. Singing is my pas­sion, that’s what I want to do,’’ Lathiff said.

‘‘We have had great va­ri­ety and gen­er­ally very good au­di­ences dur­ing the year, and it feels that the se­ries is grow­ing,’’ Donaldson said. En­try to Sun­day’s 2.30pm Globe con­cert is by $5 do­na­tion.
