MUSIC enthusiasts are being urged not to miss out on the chance to see opera star Lesley Garrett when the famous singer returns to Hartlepool this summer.

Tickets have been selling well for Hartlepool Male Voice Choir’s Summer Celebrity Concert since they went on sale at the start of the year.

But there are still plenty of seats available to see Lesley sing with the town’s own popular men’s choir.

Choir chairman Duncan Graham said the show will be a “very special performance” and people should not nmiss out.

He said: “Lesley has recently returned to her first love, opera, and has received rave reviews for her performances in La Voix Humaine by Poulenc currently being staged by Opera North in Leeds.

“We are therefore anticipating a very special performance in June because she will be on top form, though how she could better her performance of two years ago is hard to imagine.

“This is a rare chance to see and hear a singer of real quality without having to travel to Newcastle/Gateshead or even further afield.

“Hartlepool folks should not miss out.”

Lesley previously performed with Hartlepool Male Voice Choir in front of a sell out audience at The Borough Hall two years ago.

This summer’s concert takes place Saturday, June 15, again at The Borough Hall.

There are still very good seats available priced at £30 or £25 for slightly restricted view.

Doors open at 6.30pm and the show will start at 7.30pm.

Tickets are available only through choir members.

Contact Duncan Graham on (01429) 296945 or Mick Waller on (01429) 423063 to book.

Cheques should be made payable to Hartlepool MVC.
