The FSO has announced a change to the published programme for the 90th birthday gala concert on 16th June 2012.
The soloist for the evening will be Rebecca Hodgetts, who graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in June 2006 with its highest award, a Dip. RAM and the Clifton Prize for best vocal finalist. Since then, Rebecca has been in high demand on the operatic stage with performances throughout the UK and abroad. During the 2011 season she appeared as Casilda in Surrey Opera's The Gondoliers; First Lady in Mantissa Opera's new production of Magic Flute and covered Tatyana (Eugene Onegin) for Stanley Hall Opera. In the FSO's June concert, she will be singing arias by Leoncavallo, Cilea, Rossini, Lehar, Offenbach and Lowe.
