William Vann, Co-Chairman of KCMS, welcomes two hugely talented artists to perform alongside him in January. Hailed by the Telegraph as one of the first-rate young British singers ‘delivering consistently exciting singing’ for her stand out performances on opera and concert platforms, Mary Bevan is a winner of the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Young Artist award and UK Critics’ Circle Award for Exceptional Young Talent in music. Johnny Herford won the Song Prize at the Kathleen Ferrier Competition, and later the Jean Meikle Duo Prize at the Wigmore Hall International Song Competition with William Vann. Since then, he has enjoyed a diverse career on the operatic stage and concert platform. They perform an enthralling selection of songs, lieder and duets
