Join us in the Garden for a champagne reception at 3pm for an afternoon of Opera followed by a colourful Afternoon Tea on the Terrace.
We are excited to welcome the Mercia Ensemble, a talented chamber music group comprising of prize winning pianist Petra Milarová, Claire Wild, soprano, and Emma Pountney, clarinet. Much in demand as individual artists, they formed the Mercia Ensemble in 2015 and have travelled globally with their vast repertoire of operatic arias, classical music and modern songs.
Claire is an award winning soprano who attended the Royal Northern College of Music. She has sung countless operas.
Petra successfully combines her playing career with tutoring at Repton College and Birmingham Junior Conservatoire.
Emma studied clarinet with Hale Hambleton at Trinity College of Music, London and went on to take a Masters at the Stavanger Music Conservatoire in Norway.
