Katherine Jenkins live in Christchurch Park

The beautiful Katherine Jenkins
On Saturday afternoon I made the train journey from Norwich to Ipswich greatly looking forward to seeing Katherine Jenkins live in Christchurch Park. With support from Wynne Evans the Opera singer from the Go Compare ad this was always going to be a fun night.

Christchurch Park is a great setting for a picnic concert on a perfect Saturday evening. Katherine thrilled us with a splendid programme of music which included Somewhere, Angel, Godfather and Time To Say Goodbye. With her incredible voice she filled the Suffolk night air with beautiful sounds that moved us all.

The National Symphony Orchestra played brilliantly throughout the evening and Wynne Evans took us back to Italia 90' with a performance of Nessun Dorma. Katherine entertained us with a question and answer session as well as singing the Welsh National Anthem. She also sang Black Is The Colour which will appear on her new album.

She made full use of her wardrobe with regular dress changes which wowed the large audience. She finished the night with a Proms in the Park set with Union Jacks being waved throughout Land of Hope and Glory and Rule Britannia. This was a very enjoyable evening in the presence of a true star who has made Classical Music accessible across the world.
