Tatton Park reveals diverse concert lineup

It has been announced that British musical theatre actress Louise Dearman will take centre stage at the annual Tatton Park Picnic Concert in Cheshire this August.

The popular actress, who was the first to play both Elphaba and Glinda in the West End favourite ‘Wicked’, will be a special guest, performing along with The Hallé, a popular symphony orchestra based in nearby Manchester. Dearman is set to perform a range of well known hits from musicals.

It has also been confirmed that Garðar Thór Cortes, a popular classical music star from Iceland, will be making an appearance. The singer, whose album Cortes topped the charts in some parts of Asia and who was nominated for a Classical Brit Award, will perform alongside Dearman and The Hallé.

Speaking to The Chester Chronicle about her appearance, Dearman said:

“I am delighted to be performing in the Tatton Park Picnic Concert this year. It’s always a pleasure performing with The Hallé Orchestra and to collaborate with Garðar Thór Cortes in such beautiful surroundings is an honour.”

Cortes also told the paper that he is looking forward to his performance at the Chester park, especially performing with Louise Dearman. He said:

“I think this is going to be a magical evening. I can’t wait.”

It is expected that thousands of music lovers will descend on the park, nestled within the Knutsford estate, bringing a notable boost to the restaurants and hotels near Chester. It takes place Sunday, August 2.
