fm June 2016

June Issue Online

Fine Music Magazine is now online. To get the print version delivered monthly, become a Friend - subscribe to Fine Music. 

The June issue provides a fascinating insight into the unique world of choristers in the United Kingdom of which Stephen Layton is a prime example. He's the choral director of the Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge, that will be touring here in July as part of Musica Viva's International Concert Season. We speak to another European phenomenon, tenor Roberto Alagna, making his Australian debut this month; and with soprano Rachelle Durkin, currently in New York performing with the Met, but due back on home soil this month for Pinchgut Opera's production of Armida. The June issue also has the first sneak peak at the line up for this year's Fine Music Live from the Joan, the free concert for Sydney being held at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre in Penrith, on 31 July.
