The Classical Café is now in its fifth year, presenting classical music in relaxed, informal surroundings and featuring local young classical musicians.

Due to the ongoing refurbishment of Middlesbrough Town Hall, this season’s concerts are being held at the Python Gallery in Gosford Street, Middlesbrough.

Next up is 15-year-old singer Charlotte Potter on Sunday, October 16. The 15-year-old attends Laurence Jackson School in Guisborough, studies singing with Miranda Francis in Norton and is preparing to take Grade 8 this autumn.

Charlotte also receives monthly lessons with the English National Opera as well as being mentored by Kevin Thraves, Head of Staff in the Opera and Vocal Studies Department at the Royal Northern College of Music.

Charlotte plays cornet with the Silverwood Band and is a member of Tees Valley Youth Choir and the Tees Valley Chamber Choir and has performed in venues including Birmingham’s Symphony Hall, The Sage and at Wynyard Hall.

Charlotte has been a member of the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain since 2013/14, and successfully progressed into the Training Choir last year, performing at The Royal Albert Hall in April.
Charlotte has also been offered a place for the Samling Academy 2016/17.
