THE Barn Theatre has announced an all-star line up for their second virtual concert titled The Barn Theatre Presents: The Music of Finn Anderson.

Celebrating the work of the Scottish musical theatre composer, the concert, which will be hosted by Barn Theatre producer Jamie Chapman Dixon, will be the second of the Cirencester theatre’s new virtual concert series, The Barn Presents, which celebrates the work of emerging British musical theatre composers.

Finn Anderson previously collaborated with the Barn on the music and lyrics for the theatre’s 2019 world premiere of Alan Pollock’s new version of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.

The concert line up consists of: Christina Bianco, Joanne Clifton, Niki Evans, Claire-Marie Hall, Matt Henry, Danielle Hope, Rebecca Jayne-Davies, Brienne Keller, Emmanuel Kojo, Nicholas McLean, Oliver Ormson and Ella Young.

Olivier award-winner Matt Henry will perform a duet with first year drama school student Ella Young, who has recently been taking the internet by storm with her rendition of “Defying Gravity” from Wicked.

The concert, which is released on the Barn Theatre’s Facebook, YouTube and Twitter channels on Saturday at 7:30pm, will see Finn chat with Barn producer Jamie about his career so far, the creation process behind his songs and discussion with the performers about their experience.

The Barn Theatre’s first virtual concert celebrated the music of married Welsh composers Daniel and Laura Curtis.

The concert featured performances from Sabrina Aloueche, Olivier Award nominee Jon Jon Briones, Kieran Brown, Brian Cheney, Maria Coyne, Alice Fearn, Caroline Kay, Luke McCall, Nadim Naaman and Oliver Savile.

The Barn Presents: The Music of Daniel and Laura Curtis can be streamed on the Barn Theatre’s Facebook and YouTube channels.

The third concert of the series will celebrate the music of Loserville composer Elliot Davis.

The concert will air on Saturday, June 6, 2020, at 7:30pm, with the line up to be announced at a further date.
