This year’s Funtington Music Group Christmas concert is an evening of songs, arias and duets featuring two young singers, mezzo-soprano Tina Gelnere and soprano Olivia Moss, accompanied by Chris Coote (piano).
Tina Gelnere, a graduate of Chichester University, is currently studying at the David Seligman Opera School at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama with Anne Mason. She has enjoyed performing internationally throughout the UK and Europe. Olivia Moss graduated in 2016 from the University of York and now studies privately with Rosa Mannion. She was selected for the Glyndebourne Academy in 2017 and in 2018 received The Gus Christie Award. Olivia has recently performed as a soloist in Bernstein’s Mass under Marin Alsop, and in Puccini’s Suor Angelica and Handel’s Messiah.
This concert is in aid of the Robert Headley Trust; there will be a retiring collection for members.
