TENOR Joshua Ellicott will fly back from opera rehearsals in Spain for a lunchtime concert recital in Dewsbury in January.
Josh takes it all in his stride.
"That is just how life is these days" says Josh who is well known to Leeds audiences through his appearances with Opera North.
Certainly 2012 was an exciting year for this busy young professional singer with appearances in Los Angeles, New York and Boston.
Looking ahead, 2013 will see him singing Mozart at the Royal Opera house in Covent Garden. How exciting is that?
But Josh starts the New Year with a lunchtime chamber concert at Dewsbury Town Hall with Darius Battiwalla on the piano.
The concert is on a market day, Wednesday, January 9, at 12.30pm. Josh will sing English songs from Finzi to Ivor Novello.
Darius is a regular at the Dewsbury concerts and a favourite with its audiences.
Tickets are £5 (£3.50 concessions) and can be booked at Kirklees Booking Offices, by calling 01484 223200 or by simply paying on the door.
Lunches will be available in the main hall from 11.30am.
