BBC Radio 3 kicks of its series of New Generation Artist showcases at Sage Gateshead with the remarkable British mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnston.

Jennifer is in her second and final year of this BBC scheme, and has already been named by BBC Music Magazine as a “Rising Star”. She has given recitals at London’s Wigmore Hall and performed with the BBC orchestras as well as taking part in a number of high profile opera roles throughout Europe and a recent international tour of Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis with Sir John Eliot Gardiner.

With pianist Alisdair Hogarth, Jennifer brings a beautiful selection of English songs for a Sunday morning to Sage Gateshead, including music by Elgar, Britten, Warlock and Vaughan Williams. | Twitter
