My World is My Song

with

Robert Chevara DIRECTOR
Elizabeth Rossiter PIANO

Saturday 17th October 2015 at 8:00 p.m.
Glór Theatre, Ennis, Co. Clare

My World is My Song is an exciting concert performance starring Irish soprano Regina Nathan and featuring a rich and eclectic mix of songs that enhances the deep connections between the music we love, our everyday experiences and our personal stories.

This unique new show will premiere in the Glór TheatreEnnis on Saturday 17th October at 8:00 p.m.

In a semi-staged format, Regina will perform a thought-provoking, memory-evoking programme of songs from a variety of genres that includes classical arias and more modern hits from legendary storyteller-singer-performers including Janis IanLeonard Cohen and Edith Piaf.

These great songs have a timeless quality that resonate. They enable us to experience the sheer pleasure of hearing a story recounted through music, and to identify with that story in ways that allow us to make the songs our own.

“I like putting together different styles of music that tell a story or express a feeling or an experience. It is not only intensely gratifying to perform these diverse and inspirational pieces; it often introduces people to music they might previously be unfamiliar with in a format that is comfortable, intimate and unique”.

Now living in Co. Clare, Regina Nathan has performed many of the great soprano roles delighting audiences in some of the world’s most renowned opera houses. She brings to bear a vast range of singing skills, knowledge and experience, from working with world opera’s great conductors, directors and teachers, that now manifests itself in her own innovative approach to teaching and performing.

My World is My Song offers all music lovers an opportunity to share in and experience the evocative and the provocative. It will comfort with the familiar and excite with the unique. It is, above all, an evening of entertainment designed to celebrate and extol the power of song in recounting stories.

Join me in this celebration!

The Life and Songs of John McCormack, 5th October 2015, NCH Dublin

Sunday October 4th 2015 at 8.00pm
National Concert Hall, Dublin

The Kildare tenor Philip Scott is delighted to bring his performance “The Life and Songs of John McCormack” back to The National Concert Hall in October 2015. After his sell out performance in The John Field Room in January of this year, it was clear that the public’s love for John McCormack’s music was alive and well. For this concert Philip welcomes one of Irelands greatest sopranos Regina Nathan as his very special guest and also Dublin-based composer, conductor and accompanist Andrew Synnott on piano.

Philip brings a programme of John McCormack songs such as I Hear You Calling Me, Macushla, The Kerry Dance and many more back to his spiritual home. The programme will also be sprinkled with Italian Arias and of course not forgetting the majestic Panis Angelicus.

One of the highlights of the night will be Regina Nathan’s rendition of Danny Boy, a moment of great stillness and beauty. Andrew Synnott’s ability as an accompanist is astonishing, as he weaves his way through the pieces with sensitivity and understanding.

The evening unfolds as Philip tells the story of John’s life from humble beginnings in Athlone, to becoming one of the most famous tenors in the world. Along with his unquestionable singing ability John’s chatty and affable nature can’t be underestimated in making him as popular as he became. So to honour and respect The great Count John McCormack, Philip, Regina and Andrew bring you a night of intimate singing, great music and good humour.

Welcome home John.
