Guests are warmly invited to join the artists for a reception in the Club's exclusive bar and lounge after the performance. ?

Jennifer Johnston, dramatic mezzo-soprano, was named by both BBC Music Magazine and the Observer as “a rising star”, and the Financial Times as the “Face to watch in opera”. A former BBC New Generation Artist, she is a graduate of Cambridge University and the Royal College of Music and is the recipient of numerous awards.

Highlights of Jennifer’s engagements in season 2017-18 include, at the Bayerische Staatsoper, La Ciesca Gianni Schicchi /La Maestra della Novizie Suor Angelica in a new production of Puccini’s Il Trittico, and Flosshilde Das Rheingold, Götterdämmerung / Siegrune Die Walküre / Second Norn Götterdämmerung in Wagner’s Ring Cycle, all under Kirill Petrenko. She will also sing Beethoven’s 9th Symphony with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and the Cleveland Orchestra, both under Franz Welser Möst, with the Spanish National Orchestra and David Afkam, and with the BBCSSO and Thomas Dausgaard; Mahler’s Das Lied Von Der Erde with the Hamburger Symphoniker, Adès’ Totentanz with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Daniel Harding, Verdi’s Requiem with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and Edward Gardner, Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Martyn Brabbins, Bach’s St Matthew Passion with the Bach Choir and David Hill, and Mahler’s Rückert Lieder with the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra and Courtney Lewis. She will appear in recital with Joseph Middleton for BBC Radio 3 at the Northern Ireland Festival of Voice.

Born in Grimsby in 1992, Cameron Richardson-Eames is a graduate of Trinity College, Cambridge, and the Royal Academy of Music, London. He is currently a Fulbright Scholar at The Juilliard School in New York, studying collaborative piano under Dr Brian Zeger, Margo Garrett and JJ Penna, where he is supported by the Arthur Gold, Robert Fizdale, and George H Gangwere Scholarships. At Cambridge he was a choral scholar and graduated with high First Class Honours, a Senior Academic Scholarship, Newton Scholarship, and Research Scholarship, before serving three years on the university’s music faculty. At the Royal Academy of Music, he was awarded the Major Von Someron Godfrey Award for accompanists, Dame Ruth Railton Prize for chamber music, Katie Thomas Memorial Award for outstanding achievement, and the coveted honorary Diploma of the Royal Academy of Music for outstanding postgraduate performance. Recent engagements include broadcasts on BBC Radio 3, Classic FM, Südwestrundfunk Deutschland, including live at the launch night of the BBC Proms, and performances in the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Estonia, Malta, and in New York at Alice Tully Hall (Lincoln Center), Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, and Marilyn Horne’s ‘The Song Continues’ series, also at Carnegie Hall.
