 Catherine May

Sunday classical, Sudbury Symphony Orchestra, 31st March 2019

Sudbury Symphony Orchestra are delighted that Catherine May returns as soprano soloist to sing songs from the operettas. We start the evening with Dvorak's My Homeland Overture, we then have three wonderful songs sung by Catherine May and we finish with Dvorak's New World Symphony.

Catherine enjoys a successful career as a soprano soloist in both opera and in concert, stage musician and teacher. Her performances have taken her throughout Britain, Europe and the Americas having performed with many opera companies, including the English National Opera. As a concert soloist she has performed with orchestras such as the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and as s atge musician she has performed with the likes of the National Theatre. She has also performed at the Wigmore Hall.

Dvorak's New World Symphony is one of his most popular works with wonderful lyric lines and themes scattered throughout the work. It was written when he was at the height of his creative powers. The solo lines throughout the work are pure magic - with great contrasts between the lyric passages for the solo lines and the rousing full orchestra full speed sections. This is a symphony that is always a joy to perform and listen to and you leave humming the themes that Dvorak has so cleverly woven into the work.

Dvorak's My Homeland Overture, written in 1882, was part of a program of incidental music accompanying a patriotic play about the life of a Czech dramatist. The overture alternates themes from two Czech songs, one of which, "Where is my Home" is now the Czech national anthem.

We hope you will join us for a very special musical evening.
