DETAILS have emerged about the impressive line-up of soloists set to grace Louth Choral Society’s latest show-stopping performance next month.

The company is set to wow the crowds with a stunning rendition of Bach’s St John Passion at St James’s Church on April 10 - and some of those performing on the night will include major prize winners from the world of opera and oratorio.

“The all-important role of the Evangelist will be sung by Mark Wilde who makes regular appearances on the concert platform both in the UK and abroad with orchestras and ensembles including the Halle Orchestra, the Academy of Ancient Music, the London Mozart Players and The Sixteen,” said a spokesperson.

“He was awarded first prize in the 2009 Wigmore Hall/Kohn Foundation International Song Competition.

“Ruth Jenkins (soprano) is also currently studying opera at the Royal Academy of Music.”

Other major soloists include Katie Bray (contralto), Sam John Furness (tenor) and Stephen Clay (baritone),” they added.
