Anne-Marie Minhall introduces an exclusive broadcast of a concert presented by Sir Willard White, marking the 40th anniversary of the Royal Northern College of Music.
On 12th June, Sir Willard White – world-renowned operatic bass and current President of the Royal Northern College of Music – presented an evening of his favourite songs at Manchester's Bridgewater Hall to celebrate the RNCM's 40th anniversary.
The programme included music by Gershwin, songs from Carousel and South Pacific, and the show-stopping Ol’ Man River by Jerome Kern.
For this very exciting concert, given in the presence of the RNCM’s Emeritus President the Duchess of Kent, Sir Willard was joined on stage by some special guests associated with the College.
Classic FM was there – and tonight, Anne-Marie Minhall gives you the exclusive opportunity to hear it in full.
