Stephen Barlow returns for the third time to conduct the Newbury Spring Festival Chorus in masterpieces by Mozart, culminating in the Coronation Mass.
This year he is joined by the world-renowned London Mozart Players and a stellar cast of young soloists is led by Sophie Bevan.
Sophie Bevan is amongst Britain’s finest sopranos and we are delighted to welcome her back to the Festival, following her memorable appearance at last year’s closing night. Sophie will perform the Laudate Dominum from the Vespers and two of Mozart’s finest arias in tonight’s all-Mozart programme.
