Tenor returns to Globe show
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.
Lathiff made the finals of the New Zealand Aria Awards in Rotorua in October, and will performing four operatic arias on Sunday.
‘‘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.
