We regret that Eva-Maria Westbroek has had to withdraw from this recital. But we are delighted that acclaimed tenor Nicky Spence is stepping in. He joins Temple Song's curator, Julius Drake, to present Into Summer. Leaving winter behind us we travel in the company of Britten, Hardy, Haydn, Housman, Moore, Quilter, Schubert, Schumann and above all Shakespeare in search of summer. A perfect programme for a beautiful summer's evening in the stunning surroundings of Middle Temple Hall.
This concert is generously supported by Malcolm Herring, Peter Espenhahn and Michael and Caroline McLaren.
