I continued my musical summer with a recital at the Miejski Dom Cultury w Rawie Mazowieckiej in Rawa Mazowiecka, Poland. I had never performed outside of the UK before, so this was a very exciting occasion!
Accompanied by Jakub Gutkowski, I sang arias by Mozart, Cavalli, Gounod and Puccini, along with song repertoire by Richard Strauss, Gurney and Quilter. I was delighted to have the opportunity to perform – and even managed to deliver my first (very short) introduction in Polish.
The Cultural Centre organises a wide range of concerts, from folk to jazz to classical to rap. It was great to find out more about their activities – and to learn about their packed programme for the year ahead.
Many thanks to all those who came to the recital; we had a wonderful time and can’t wait to come back soon!
