A REPLACEMENT soprano will be performing at Rhyl Town Hall with a pianist later this month after the original singer’s concert had to be postponed.

Erin Rossington was due to sing at the event, organised by Rhyl Music Club, with pianist Harry Rylance on February 28, but has been replaced by fellow soprano Kathleen Nic Dhiarmada.

A spokesperson for Rhyl Music Club said: “Kathleen Nic Dhiarmada is a Jerwood Young Artist at Glyndebourne, so please be reassured that we still have a fantastic concert.”

The event is starting on February 28 at 7.30pm - doors will open at 6.45pm, and tickets, costing £15, can be purchased on the door.

Stephen Leeder, of Rhyl Music Club, said: “Harry Rylance gained the highest marks in his Royal Academy studies and has regular work.

“He is a repetiteur (he rehearses the singers)at Glyndebourne, but we first came across him with Trio Arisonto, which also features BBC Young Musician horn player, Annemarie Federle.”

Harry Rylance played for Rhyl Music Club last season, and received a academic musical education at the Royal Academy of Music, receiving the dipRAM for the highest mark in the 2020 postgraduate piano final recitals.

He has been the recipient of numerous awards as a soloist and accompanist.

Since then, in addition to his solo, orchestral and opera work, he has been in demand as an accompanist with singers and instrumentalists.
