Jenny Lind: A Talk from Richard England
In a special prelude to Fairytales & Nightingales (booked separately), join us for a glass of Festival fizz as Richard England sets the scene with the breathtaking tale of ‘Swedish nightingale’ Jenny Lind’s upbringing and career that led to her hugely successful visits to Norwich. Her gift to the city was the establishment of a Children’s Hospital, still fondly known as The Jenny Lind.
Swedish-based British conductor, Simon Crawford-Phillips who devised the concert will join the talk to tell us a little about his own musical journey, charting the life and influence of the legendary singer.
Richard, a consultant surgeon, will elaborate on some of the fascinating and valuable work carried out in her hospital today. Proceeds from the talk will be donated to the Norfolk & Norwich Hospitals Charity (No. 1048170).
The talk will be followed by Fairytales and Nightingales at 7.30pm (tickets booked separately)
Proceeds from the concert will be donated to the Norfolk & Norwich Hospitals Charity (No. 1048170) in aid of the Jenny Lind Children’s Hospital. Click here to donate.
