October Concert Guest Introduction
We are very pleased to be welcoming Sara Louisa Parry as one of our guests for the October ‘When You Wish’ concert.

She went on to study singing with Glenville Hargreaves at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. Whilst she studied classically and sings as a Mezzo Soprano, her first love, having been a member of Belper Operatic Society, is Musical Theatre. After graduating, her first professional job was in the cast of Les Misérables at the Palace Theatre Manchester. She toured with the show to Dublin and Edinburgh and took part in the !995 10th Anniversary Concert at the Royal Albert Hall. .
