This year's Samling Artist Showcase, 'Come into the Garden', turns to the language of flowers for an evening of song inspired by gardens and poetry through the seasons. The concert offers a snapshot of Samling Institute’s presence in the world of song and opera, with emerging talents performing alongside established stars.

Soprano Simona Mihai has captivated audiences on the operatic stage: this concert offers a rare opportunity to hear her in song repertoire. Anna Stéphany is emerging as one of the world’s most exciting mezzo-sopranos, who ‘radiates warmth and substance’, (The Guardian). Tenor Filipe Manu and baritone Dominic Sedgwick are recent Samling Artists, both of whom have been selected for the Royal Opera House’s prestigious Jette Parker Young Artists Programme. They are joined by two Samling Artist pianists who are both regulars at Wigmore Hall: Joseph Middleton, described by BBC Music Magazine as ‘one of the brightest stars in the world of song’, and the up-and-coming young accompanist and chamber musician Somi Kim. Our Samling Artist musicians are joined by the distinguished actor Sir Simon Russell Beale, who reads poetry to complement the music performed.
