Acclaimed mezzo-soprano to top the bill at Wigan Music Society's 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.

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