When I was one-and-twenty I heard a wise man say,

“Give crowns and pounds and guineas but not your heart away;

Give pearls away and rubies but keep your fancy free.”

But I was one-and-twenty, no use to talk to me.

— AE Housman

Young love takes many forms. Journey through the hopeful innocence of first love to the heartbreak of unrequited love and the wisdom gained through experience in a concert featuring some of the most beautiful music ever written. Directed by Samling Artists Miranda Wright and Ian Tindale, this semi-staged performance features some of the North East’s most talented young singers.

To include music by Mozart, Schubert, Schumann, Fauré and Britten, accompanied by Samling Artist pianist Ian Tindale.

Samling Academy is developing the next generation of classical singers in the North East of England. Young people aged 14-21 who are growing up in this region and those who have chosen to come here to study are benefiting from unique training and performance opportunities.
