The first winner of the Glenarm Festival of Voice, Newry-based baritone Ben McAteer trained at the National Opera Studio in London and on the Guildhall School of Music & Drama opera course. He previously studied chemistry at the University of St Andrews.
Ben featured in one of the first BMS Mini-Fests, back in 2011, with a programme of English art song. He returns to this rich seam of music with a programme centred on Vaughan Williams’ Songs of Travel, and is partnered by renowned accompanist Iain Burnside.
In addition, the programme includes the world premiere of a new work by local composer Elaine Agnew, specially commissioned for Ben and Iain by BMS to celebrate its centenary and the 10th anniversary of the Northern Lights Mini-Fest. The work sets poems by the celebrated Belfast poet Ciaran Carson.
You will be sent a direct link the day of the performance (30 mins before the show start time).
