Day 360 - There was a young tenor from Perth

The last lunchtime concert we were forced to cancel was to be given by a very young tenor. His name is Liam Bonthrone and he comes from Perth! He recently completed Postgraduate studies at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama having previously gained a First Class Bachelor’s degree from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland where he won a number of prizes.

Liam is following the well worn path of a young and promising singer. He is a Samling Artist, and has performed as an Alvarez Young Artist with Garsington Opera. Liam will return to Garsington as a Young Artist in 2021, to perform Corypheè in the ensemble, and cover the title role in Rossini’s Le Comte Ory.

He has also appeared in various roles in the ensemble for Bernstein’s Candide, with the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Marin Alsop, in the Barbican Centre.

He frequently performs in collaboration with pianist Alasdair Hogarth for Classic FM. .

Alongside his studies, Liam appears regularly in theatres throughout the UK as part of The Two Highland Lads – a Scottish variety duo, alongside fellow Perth baritone Kenneth Maciver, and Leonard Brown and his All Star Band.

As soon as we can we will certainly re-engage him to perform in his home town concert hall!
