Although they moved away to the far-off Midlands we have managed to entice back the formerly Whalley based professional opera singers Darren Clarke and Caroline Lester who make up the acclaimed singing duo Trovatori for an early Christmas treat, with songs from opera, the West End and more, plus a few popular festive songs and carols! .
Darren studied at the Royal Northern College of Music. His singing career has taken him to opera houses and theatres in Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, and Europe. He is also an accomplished Lieder singer. Caroline studied composition at Durham University and reached the final stages of Channel 4ís Operatunity and ITVís Search for a Soprano. She has performed numerous operatic roles and has appeared in many oratorios and concerts across the UK, Europe and the United States.
They regularly perform as guest artists onboard luxury cruise ships as well as the luxury Thomson Gold and Thomson Couples resorts across Europe to great acclaim. They also perform across the UK in concert halls and theatres as well as at corporate events, music festivals, hotels and private events.
Tickets for any of these events, at the very reasonable price of £6
can be obtained at Jim's Garage, 21 King Street, Whalley
or Whalley Post Office or from David Balfour on 01254 822350
