Handel to Cole Porter – sea songs in West Camel


Alex Hutton, a countertenor from Somerset, is completing his undergraduate degree at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London before pursuing a Masters at the same institution. With interests in Early Music, Romantic Song, and mezzo-soprano repertoire, Alex has performed at various prestigious venues, including the Royal Albert Hall Promenade Concerts and Notre Dame. Collaborative pianist and singer Chavdar Mazgalov, who has performed at several prestigious venues himself, joins Alex for his first solo concert in West Camel. This promises to be an unforgettable musical experience for all in attendance.
The repertoire includes Handel’s Giulio Cesare in Egitto, Schubert’s Meeresstille, and Elgar’s Sea Pictures featuring In Haven and Sea Slumber Song. It also includes Hector Berlioz’s Sur Les Lagunes, Rebecca Clarke’s The Seal Man, and Cole Porter’s comedic The Tale of the Oyster.
The program concludes with Benjamin Britten’s Tom Bowling, a folk song about the passing of a beloved crew member.
Tickets £10 on the door – tea, coffee and cake are included. All enquiries kirk.hutton@rocketmail.com
