You often hear about the lack of great vocalists nowadays. Have you ever complained that the big stars never come to Burgess Hill? Here’s some good news..

 

Local church, St Edward the Confessor has announced the first of a series of concerts this year to support the work the church does in the community and to donate 10% of ticket revenues to a local charity of the artist’s choice.

 

Burgess Hill born Nick Pritchard, now recognised as one of the foremost tenors in the UK, is the first of a series of four concerts this year featuring gifted and home grown musicians across the musical spectrum.

 

He read music as a choral scholar at New College, Oxford and studied with Russell Smythe at the Royal College of Music International Opera School (RCMIOS) where he was the recipient of the Eric Joseph Shilling Prize. He was awarded the London Bach Society Singer’s Prize in 2013 and is currently a Samling Artist. Last year, he won the 2017 Whatsonstage Opera Poll award for Breakthrough Artist in UK Opera. Nick grew up in Burgess Hill and played piano and was a leading member of the choir here at St Edward the Confessor.

 

Piano accompanist Ian Tindale has performed across London, the UK and Europe. Recent engagements have included song recitals at the Oxford Lieder Festival, Buxton Festival, and Petworth Festival, and he has performed with artists such as Ailish Tynan, Christopher Purves, Susan Bullock, Gemma Summerfield, Soraya Mafi, Anna Harvey, and Nicky Spence.

 

In the vacuum created by the closure of The Martlets Hall, this is an initiative to promote local musical talent in the town.

 

On Saturday 23rd February St Edward’s Mustard Seed Café will be open before, during and after the concert for a pre-concert supper at 6.30pm (an extra £10 including a glass of wine), doors for the concert will open at 7.00pm and the concert will start at 7.30pm – with an interval at 8.15pm.

 

There is a seating limit of 120 for this concert and 10% of ticket proceeds will be donated to Nick Pritchard’s chosen local charity – Growing with Calm – a local organisation offering therapy and self-help strategies for vulnerable children.

 

Tickets available from Eventbrite, the Mustard Seed Café at St Edwards, Burgess Hill Radio offices in Church Walk and at the Burgess Hill Council Offices, Church Walk, Burgess Hill.

 

Local Vehicle graphics and design company PVL has kindly sponsored the event. Thanks also to Burgess Hill Radio for its support.
