Lesley Garrett to appear at the Brighouse Arts Festival
The Brighouse Arts Festival which will be held on 4th to 13th of October is delighted to announce today that the headline act of this year’s event will be Lesley Garrett the famous Yorkshire singer. She will be giving a recital on Saturday 12th October at St Martin’s Church.
The organisers believe that her appearance in Brighouse is a Yorkshire exclusive. The show is entitled “An evening with Lesley Garrett”. She will be singing and talking about her glittering career in music.
Lesley Garrett CBE is Britain’s best known soprano, regularly appearing in opera, music theatre, concert, on television and CD. For more than 30 years she has enjoyed one of the most successful careers of any modern-day, classically trained soprano, winning both critical acclaim and the affection of many fans and music lovers through the breadth and diversity of her work.
As a recording artist, she has fourteen solo CDs to her credit; Soprano in Red received the Gramophone Award for ‘Best-selling Classical Artist of the Year’. Recent albums are Travelling Light, The Singer, So Deep is the Night and Amazing Grace. She was also a featured artist on the platinum selling Perfect Day single released by the BBC in aid of Children in Need.
Lesley’s major television appearances include Lesley Garrett…Tonight, The Lesley Garrett Show, Strictly Come Dancing, Loose Women and most recently a Songs of Praise Special – My Story, My Music with Aled Jones for the BBC. Lesley was also the subject of a South Bank Show on LWT.
As well as Lesley Garrett, the festival is also hosting a concert by Kiki Dee who famously had a number one single with Elton John. She is performing on Thursday 10th October again at St Martin’s church.
