Rita Cullis soprano
Alec Hone piano
We are fortunate in the Oundle area to have living amongst us many musicians of international standing, and we are delighted to welcome two of them for their first ever Music in Quiet Places concert.
Rita Cullis has sung with opera companies and in concert halls around the world including The Royal Opera Covent Garden, De Nederlandse Opera, San Diego Opera and Hamburg State Opera, and in concert halls in London, Amsterdam, Lisbon and Dresden. Alec Hone is renowned both for his masterly piano playing and his keyboard teaching.
This evening is a musical journey around Britain with songs by both well-known composers such as Henry Purcell, Ralph Vaughan Williams and Benjamin Britten, as well as the lesser-know but equally inventive Roger Quilter, John Ireland and Madeleine Dring.
