Wigan Music Society bosses are billing it “an opportunity not to be missed” as a much-feted mezzo-soprano stars in their latest concert.

Jane Irwin will be performing operatic treasures in the recital at Trinity United Reformed Church, Milton Grove, Wigan, at 7.30pm on Saturday June 3.

Also on the stage will be successful Wigan soprano Lucy Farrimond and the programme will feature arias and duets plus piano solo music from the singers’ two accompanists John Gough and Matthew Lau.

Jane has given recitals across the world with many acclaimed accompanists and orchestras in repertoire including Wagner and Puccini.

Lucy is a former student of Chetham’s School of Music and is currently at the Royal Northern College of Music in her Masters year.

A society spokesperson said: “This is an opportunity to hear one of the greatest singers of our time – not to be missed.”

Tickets are available on the door priced £15 for non-members, £12 for members and £5 for students.
