Gemma Summerfield and Sebastian Wybrew


They will be performing songs by a diversity of composers, from Schubert, Hugo Wolf and Korngold to Menotti, Thea Musgrave, Poulenc, Victor Herbert and Frank Bridge.

Soprano Gemma Summerfield leapt into prominence at the 2015 Kathleen Ferrier Awards when she 'swept the board' winning both 1st Prize and the Loveday Song Prize. With her reglar duo partner, Sebastian Wybrew, they were awarded the Jean Miekle Duo Prize at the 2017 Wigmore Hall International Song Competition. Gemma was recently the only British finalist in the new Glyndebourne Cup competition. She is also a Yeoman of the Worshipful Company of Musicians having been awarded the Silver Medal. Gemma is a Carne Scholar, an Associate Artist with Classical Opera, a Countess of Munster Recital Scheme Artist and is also an active participant with Live Music Now.

So we are especially pleased to have secured Gemma and Sebastian for our midsummer "launch concert" at the newly re-opened Sharow Church.

Supported by the Countess of Munster Trust to whom we are all eternally grateful for the support that they give to the rising stars of the musical profession.
