Sophia Grech Opera Singer
Hi folks !
Welcome to my new chat page, thought it would be a fantastic opportunity to give everyone the chance to message me on this page and to be able to update you on my thoughts and news.
Feel free to send me a message about my career, or any questions or comments regarding autism or living with the condition.
I wanted to start of by saying a big thank you to all those followers and fans who have already sent me messages, I will always do my best to reply to as many as I can, so be rest assured they do not get ignored, I read all of them !
Firstly I want to apologise for the delay in publishing my singing book 'I wish I could sing', so many of you have asked me when it will be published. It's nearing completion and when it is released and on the shelves, I will let all you know the date so you can go and buy your own copy or order it on-line.
The book was due to have been finished this year but yet again it's been such another busy year with performances and interviews both home and abroad. My most recent interview is due to be published nationally, so keep your eyes peeled and await the update !
I was also delighted to have been
featured in the new Adam Feinstein
book,'Autism Works' published by
Routledge in September 2018.
It is always a juggling act to be able to incorporate all these different aspects of my career, the requests for interviews and commitments to various organisations and groups, including my role as ambassador for Autism Wessex since 2017.
2018 has been another crazy year, by the way congratulations to everyone earlier this month on a great performance at the Sheldonian theatre in Oxford, I was the alto soloist in a sold-out performance of Saint- Sean's Christmas Oratorio, which was conducted by the wonderful Robert Secret; if you don't know the piece then have a listen, it is an amazing work.
Had a busy summer giving concerts with world renowned trumpeter Crispian Steele- Perkins and pianist Leslie pearson, one of the summer events was a concert held in the beautiful village of Shere, where we were delighted to be joined by the highly talented Classic FM presenter, soprano, Catherine Bott and her husband Stephen Henderson who is a highly recognised percussionist. He did us the honour of joining us in a few pieces; the day included a leisurely lunch in the soaring sun and heat of this year's wonderful summer; albeit the temperatures soared beyond what was comfortable !
More soon !
