What a great way to end the 2018-19 season – with Simon and his jazz musician colleagues and their wonderful “Blue Skies: Songlines to American Music” concert at the Wigmore Hall yesterday! Click on photo above to see the gallery of curtain call photos…

The day before the concert Simon and Matthew Regan appeared on the BBC Radio 3 ‘In Tune’ programme and performed three of the songs featured in the show – Lush Life, Song of the Bigshot and Stardust. You can listen again to their performance on BBC Sounds for a further 28 days. Click here for link…

Yes, a splendidly entertaining concert at Wigmore Hall – fun, dramatic, romantic, moving and relaxed. A great time was had by all, off and on stage. Such a remarkable range of styles following hot on the heels of his barnstorming Almaviva. He is the Count to his fingertips, self-serving, furious, hilarious, yet always human with that touch of pathos in his frustration and defeat. Beautifully sung and a consummate story-teller.
It has been a memorable season, as ever marked by Simon’s understanding and characterisation of each role he performs and the wide-ranging colours and attention to the text of every song.
Thank you for so many memorable evenings.
And lovely to meet Patricia at Grange Park, I hope our paths will cross again.
