Live music: Russell Watson and Camilla Kerslake for classical concert

Have your say

TWO of world’s top singers are to perform an open-air classical concert at Sandringham Estate.

Russell Watson – affectionately known as The Voice – is confirmed to perform strictly classical for Sandringham’s Last Night of the Proms on Sunday, August 8.

It follows the recent announcement that Will Young is to become the first non-classical music star to perform at HM The Queen’s Sandringham Estate.

Russell, who will be joined by Camilla Kerslake, first rose to prominence in 1999 singing the anthems at several, exceptionally high profile, sporting events – including at Wembley and the UEFA Champions League Final between Man Utd and Bayern Munich.

He shot to fame in a relatively short timeframe, with his 2001 debut album The Voice, a mixture of operatic arias and pop covers, reaching number five in the UK album chart.

Having started out humbly performing working men’s clubs, Watson has since gone on to become multi-platinum selling star making him the UK’s biggest-selling tenor.

The operatic sensation will be joined live on stage by highly-talented Classical Brit Award nominee and fellow classical crossover star, Camilla Kerslake.

The pair will be supported on the night by the National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by William Hayward
