We are extremely grateful to the Bowerman Charitable Trust for inviting Opera South once again to The Music Room at Champs Hill – a private concert hall created by retired farmer and music lover David Bowerman and his wife, Mary.

The Hall is set in stunning West Sussex countryside and its heathland garden has been developed around old sand quarries containing a collection of over 300 cultivars of heather and dwarf conifers and adorned with statues. Our concert is therefore also a special opportunity to visit the garden, which will open at 6 pm especially for Opera South guests.

After your garden visit (sorry, no picnics!), enjoy wine and canapés followed by a recital showcasing two exceptionally talented singers in a powerful programme about feelings: first-, lost- and unrequited-love, jealousy and regret. Tender, emotional operatic content including arias by Verdi, Mozart, Rossini and Donizetti, and songs by Schumann, Tosti, Liszt and Strauss.

The Music Room and Champs Hill Records are not-for-profit entities created specifically to give audiences an opportunity to hear the finest musicians in the world and to provide a platform for some of the marvellous young performers who are on their way up. With exposed beams and polished floor, The Music Room has excellent acoustics and a beautiful Steinway. Seating is un-numbered and unreserved.
