A review and article about Liverpool concert.

What can I say? It was wonderful! Scary Scarpia, Powerful Wotan, Tender Wolfram and Brilliant Bryn! Still trying to get my breath back. And it was great to meet Lovely Lesley, too!

Hi Irene

I can second everything you say about Saturday night and the super article and review. It was lovely to meet and speak to Lesley Laughing both before and after the Concert, and it compensated for no backstage visit to greet Bryn afterwards, despite Marilyn's efforts. (I do hope Jim and her Mum are better soon. He did well to be there. Good wishes to them both!)

It was an amazing evening, Bryn on top form Laughing and the wonderful Orchestra and Choir. At the end, some Liverpool Phil. 'regulars' seated near to us said they had never known their Orchestra have standing ovations before! They certainly had on Saturday night - and we know why - the brilliant soloist!!! Laughing

And another. Do you get the impression these scousers quite like him?

Mind you, I'm not sure if Bryn will like the comment about Harry Secombe (spelling note to journalist - no 'a' in Secombe).

What a fantastic concert-I enjoyed every moment. Bryn certainly showed what a versatile singer he is, and did `Liverpool-Capital of Culture` proud. And what a good rappore between him and the conductor,orchestra and choir-not to mention the appreciative audience. A friend of mine who sings in the Philharmonic Choir said what a fantastic rehearsal they had had with Bryn on Friday night and how much fun he had been to work with.
And it was lovely to meet Lesley in the bar beforehand-what a charming person she is.
Oh well-only 2 months to wait till Manchester!
And Liverpool will be even more cultured now after we educated 2 taxi drivers about Bryn. Next time they take someone to see him they`ll be able to say `Oh you mean the famous Welsh Bass Baritone` instead of `WHO????`
