Young Artists’ Programme Recital – Charlotte Clapperton & Mark Rogers

Live stream access: £5
In the first of our lunchtime recitals featuring students from the Royal Academy of Music, Charlotte and Mark have chosen to programme their recital based on the theme “Poets of the British Isles”.
Almost all composers have written songs in response to poetry which has and some of the greatest music ever composed. Included in their recital are Vaughan Williams’ cycle Four Poems by Fredegond Shove, three of Elgar’s Sea Pictures and Roger Quilter’s Love’s Philosophy.
Charlotte is currently in her 4th year at RAM studying with renowned mezzo-soprano, Catherine Wyn-Rogers. She is also a keen actress and was nominated for the Michael Caine Award for best young actress at the Leatherhead festival 2018 and received the award for best devised piece.
Mark is a pianist from San Antonio, Texas. He was a 2020 Britten-Pears Young Artist, a 2021 Leeds Lieder Young Artist, and has three times won the Hester Dickson Lieder prize at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
Supported by Ewan and Jenny Harper, and Penny Mayhew in memory of Derek Mayhew, long term volunteer of the Festival.
Performance ends at approximately 1.45pm
