    Friday Nov 25 | Croydon Guardian

    In 2017, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra's exceptional Principal Clarinetist, Katherine Lacy, will be performing Mozart's ever-popular Clarinet Concerto at the Rose Theatre Kingston on January 28.

The Hollywood scores here ranged from Korngold and Franz Waxman through to Michel Legrand and John Williams, and the singers were Kim Criswell, demonstrating a fine facility with the back catalogue of Barbra Streisand, and regular favourite with the band Matthew Ford.
