15 - Julia O'Connor
We welcome Soprano Julia O'Connor to the festival for the first time this year. With her sublime coloratura and glorious high notes, Julia is in high demand as a soloist, and we are very pleased to welcome her. She will be performing a varied recital, including some of the best loved arias and songs from the Baroque period through to the Classical period and into the 20th Century.
16 - Bonfire Radicals
Written and performed by Katie Stevens
Katie Stevens grew up in Calne and attended the John Bentley School, before following her love of the clarinet first to Cardiff University and later to Birmingham. It was here that she became interested in folk music and at this point joined together with six friends to form the Bonfire Radicals. Birmingham based Bonfire Radicals weave together eastern European inspired woodwind with refined medieval recorder lines, traditional Scottish fiddle with electric bass, guitar and global percussion for a highly-spirited stage show.
17 - CODA: SuperNova
The ever popular local ladies singing group SupaNova, just like the Festival, has seen many changes since it was formed forty years ago and performed at the first ever Calne Music and Arts Festival. And true to form, SupaNova ladies will energetically burst into song with a colourful, eclectic, scintillating repertoire of melodies. Come and be dazzled.
