A Concert will be held tomorrow (Saturday 28th April 2012) at 7.30pm at St Gabriel’s Church, Pimlico (London SW1) which features an exciting line up of up-and-coming talent, performing operatic favourites from La Traviata, Carmen, Marriage of Figaro and more.
This Concert is the result of an experiment in using social media to produce and promote the arts, and was thought up as a new way to engage the public with opera. In a time when arts funding is being cut, and there are fewer opportunities for emerging professionals, these young singers have harnessed the power of social networking site Twitter to create the first in a series of opera gala concerts. Called “Opera Twala”, every part of the gala has been organized and planned through the site; from selecting the performers to finding the venue and choosing the programme.
Tickets are £10, £8 (concessions) & £5 (under-16s) on the door.
