This award-winning Spanish soprano makes her Barber Concerts debut as part of our continuing partnership with Oxford Lieder for a performance entitled ‘A Spanish Songbook’ with Oxford Lieder director Sholto Kynoch. Lorenza is an alumna of the National Opera Studio, and more recently winner of the ‘vocalist of the year’ at the 2019 LUKAS awards. She has an enviable reputation for captivating audiences, and operatic performances have been met with critical acclaim. The programme includes Judith Weir’s A Spanish Liederbooklet and songs by Granados and Rodrigo.
