Russell Watson - with special guests Derwent Brass

08.03.2024

Enjoy a special evening with Russell Watson and special guests; Derwent Brass!

Russell Watson never imagined he would someday be hailed as one of the world’s greatest classical singers. Since being described by the New York Times as a performer “who sings like Pavarotti and entertains the audience like Sinatra” he subsequently released ten studio albums, each one receiving more critical acclaim than the last. His debut album ‘The Voice’ shot up the UK charts where he held the number one spot for a world record 52 weeks. At the same time, Russell held the number one spot in the USA, making him the first British male to hold the accolade of a simultaneous transatlantic number one. His second studio album ‘Encore’ soon followed, it became an even greater success selling almost two million copies worldwide. During this period Russell was rewarded with various awards including four Classical Brits.

A very special evening and a real exclusive Four-time Brit Classical Award winner Russell Watson, accompanied by his pianist, Mike Moran and Derwent Brass. The world-renowned tenor will be performing a special show with classic songs old and new, together with a selection of hits from his illustrious career. A truly spectacular concert experience is in the offering in the heart of Derbyshire.

Derwent Brass is a proven success story in the Midlands rich heritage of brass banding.   With innovative programming, continuous artistic development, and wide-reaching repertoire – often from the pens of leading associate composers – they dare to step outside of the traditional mould to lead the way in brass band music and entertainment.

Firmly established in the Championship Section, the band has enjoyed a great deal of podium finishes in both conventional and entertainment competitions across the country.

Start time: 19:30, doors open 18:45.
