Songs & Tales - An Audience with Jonathan Veira

You are warmly invited to what’s guaranteed to be a hugely entertaining evening on Saturday 25th January 2020 at 7.30pm in the Queen’s Hall.

Jonathan Veira has enjoyed a successful international career as a comic baritone in the world of classical opera and has garnered an enthusiastic following throughout the UK and beyond for his one-man shows. Jonathan not only possesses a magnificent voice, but has a big personality to go with it, and his ability to entertain an audience for an evening without anyone even dreaming to look at their watches is unrivalled. His warm personality, his ability as a raconteur and his brilliant musicianship shine through at all times in what can only be described as a unique evening of entertainment.

I have had the privilege of knowing Jonathan most of my adult life and have been present at a number of his shows, including the making of a DVD a few years ago. Through our friendship, he has been kind enough to be a patron for Chiltern Music Academy, and has in fact performed at RGS before, but not for some years. I cannot recommend him highly enough and guarantee that you will have a fantastically entertaining evening, whether you are into opera, or music, or not into the arts at all. Most of all, Jonathan is a warm human being, who has the knack of connecting with all people, whatever their tastes, interests or positions, and he is very, very funny.

For tickets, please visit the Little Box Office. Tickets are £15 adults, £10 for full-time students (under 22) and a family discounted rate of £45 (2 adults, 2 under 22s).

There will be refreshments served by the Friends of Music before the concert and during the interval.
