Christmas Tree Festival Concert


"A Christmas Box of Delights"



Susan Rose Lees, Mezzo Soprano, trained at the Royal Academy of Music where she was awarded the Gold medal in 1971. She was a soloist at Glyndebourne Festival Opera, the Royal Opera House, Wexford Opera and English National Opera, becoming a founder member of the chorus of Opera North based in Leeds in 1978, also performing many roles, until retirement in 2009.

Sue has performed many oratorios throughout England and abroad including Messiah, Verdi Requiem, Dream of Gerontius (Angel), The Creation, Bach Passions, Elijah and others.

In 1976 Sue performed the Sandman in Brian Large’s Christmas T.V. production of Hansel and Gretel.
Since retiring from Opera North Sue has taught singing at Hull and Leeds Universities, The Leeds Conservatoire, and in Leeds Schools.

Sue spends much of her time organising charity concerts with her pupils and colleagues in North Yorkshire. We are delighted to welcome her and her guests for our Christmas Tree Festival Charity Lunchtime Concert.
