If you are a fan of musical arias then this evening is for you! This wonderful event will be filled with some of your favourite songs from musical theatre including Les Miserables, The Sound of Music, and My fair Lady, performed by Alexandra Kennedy, Mary-Jess, long term Lullaby Trust supporter Jamie Lonsdale and Lyndall Dawson as pianist.
A lovely evening in an intimate venue. Mary-Jess sang beautifully (of course).
The duet "I never left you" once again brought tears to my eyes. "Summertime", sounding exquisite in Mandarin, was a nice contrast to the more usual version I heard from Mary-Jess last year at Longcot. I think was the first time I have heard Mary-Jess sing "Think of me", but I hope it won't be the last.
In the second half, by way of a change, Mary-Jess sang "Let it go", again partially in Chinese. The touching duet "Forever together" written by Jamie and sung with him was Mary-Jess's final song for the evening.
