Bigspot for­local opera singer

Rutherglen Reformer - - General Election - Dou­glas Dickie

Cam­bus­lang opera singer Anna Hey­wood is per­form­ing in Glas­gow this week.

The show on Satur­day, May 20 will feature opera, jazz and mu­si­cal theatre, as well as per­form­ers from the Royal Con­ser­va­toire of Scot­land.

It fol­lows a sim­i­lar show last year held to raise money so she could at­tend an Ital­ian opera school.

Anna said: “I was overwhelmed last year by the sup­port of my family and friends, as well as peo­ple I didn’t even know.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to it but I am a lit­tle apprehensive about the num­bers. I will be very exposed and singing a tricky reper­toire.”

Anna has pre­vi­ously ap­peared in a production of ‘The Mar­riage of Fi­garo’ in a theatre just out­side Paris. It went on to be per­formed in Lon­don.

She also sang in front of an au­di­ence of thou­sands in Wales when sup­port­ing the Lon­don Welsh Male Voice Choir.

The show takes place at Ren­field St Stephen’s on Glas­gow’s Bath Street. Tick­ets cost £10/£15 and can be bought from www.eventbrite. co.uk or on the door.
