'Lift up our voices': a special Gilbert and Sullivan concert  

We have a very special evening planned with the Tait Trust at the Royal Overseas League in London for our April meeting. Members of both organisations will be able to attend and enjoy this very special concert. 

The evening will feature Ross Alley as MC who will introduce the musical items and presentations.  Also, Professor Chad Vindin, as Artistic Director and Stuart Maunder, artistic Director of Victoria Opera, Australia and  who directed The Gondoliers and Utopia Limited for Scottish Opera and the D'Oyly Carte Trust in 2021.   We are fortunate in having two such notable personalities as a part of this event.

The Tait Memorial Trust was set up to support young singers from Australia and New Zealand in memory of Viola Wilson who was a principal with both the D’Oyly Carte Opera Company and the  J.C. Williamson Company in Australia becoming their Managing and Artistic Director and marrying Frank Tait whose family ran the company.   Her story is a fascinating one and we will also learn something of this during this event with a wonderful slide show of pictures from her life.   Many of the singers sponsored by the Tait Trust have gone on to have very successful professional careers across the world.
