West London Sinfonia will be performing Verdi's Requiem, on Saturday, 23 March at St Barnabas Church, Ealing W5. at 7.45 pm

Donít miss your chance to experience the thrill of Verdiís powerful music played by the West London Sinfonia, Diversity Choir and four renowned soloists. The soloists include:

British lyric soprano Nadine Benjamin is an English National Opera Harewood Artist and made her ENO début as Clara (Porgy and Bess) in October 2018, followed by Musetta (La bohème), receiving excellent reviews for both roles.

Estonian Monika-Evelin Liiv, an alumna of the Royal Opera House Jette Parker Young Artist Programme, has performed numerous roles at Covent Garden, most recently last autumn 2018 in the Ring Cycle.

British-Cypriot lyric tenor Mario Sofroniou is equally at home on the opera stage, in opera galas and in concert performances. A notable previous performance of the Verdi Requiem was under the baton of Sir David Willcocks.

Russian bass Denis Sedov was one of very few non-American singers ever invited to join the Metropolitan Operaís prestigious Young Artist Development Programme and made his début there in Gordaniís Fedora in a cast with Placido Domingo and Mirella Freni.

West London Sinfonia plays a range of classical music, giving six concerts a year, mainly in Chiswick and Ealing, plus a special Christmas performance for young families. The orchestra is looking forward to performing Holstís The Planets in the next orchestral season. Diversity Choirís was formed in 1992 and the 60-strong choir sings a wide variety of music. Their director is Jan Rautio, a critically acclaimed soloist, accompanist and chamber musician.
