Colin Bryce & Gina Baker
Date: 26th August 19:00
In a show packed with charm, sophistication (and a cracking pair of tartan trews!) classical crossover tenor Colin Thomas Bryce, along with pianist Gina Baker, will take you on a whistle-stop tour of some of the greatest melodies from the world of Musical Theatre, Opera and Scots song.
Scottish born Colin is a graduate of the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama where he trained in opera and musical theatre and was a recipient of the Leverhulme Scholarship. His career to date has seen him performing internationally in a variety of capacities including as a concert soloist, as a headline act with vocal groups the Opera Boys and Ancora (between UK theatre tours and as guest entertainers onboard Cunard, Crystal, Celebrity, Norwegian and P&O Cruises) and as a vocalist for Scottish radio, including being the voice of restaurant chain Tony Macaroni. In Scotland he performs regularly across the central belt as a soloist for Music in Hospitals & Care. Further to his work as a singer, Colin hosts and co-produces the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama’s Annual Burns Night; an event which has solidified itself as a highlight within the college’s performance calendar and has just celebrated its sixth year as a sell-out event.
Scottish pianist Gina Baker is a much sought-after accompanist and repetiteur in Scotland and northern England. She graduated with a BMus(Hons) degree from the University of Edinburgh in 2011, and a Masters in Music Performance from the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in 2013. Gina currently works for the National Youth Choir of Scotland as accompanist for the Stirling and Edinburgh area choirs, and also plays for the national choir residentials throughout the year. In 2015 and 2017, she toured with the Edinburgh branch to the Aberdeen International Youth Festival and performed with the Edinburgh Chamber Choir at the opening ceremony of the Scottish Parliament in 2016. She is the official accompanist for the Scottish Brass Band solo competitions and the Edinburgh Competition Festival. Gina also undertook the Continuing Education repetiteur course at RCS and spent the summer of 2016 in Italy with the conductor and director of Washington National Opera on a production of Carmen, and was also repetiteur for Edinburgh Grand Opera’s production of La Bohème. Gina works annually with Rocket Opera on productions for Berwick Festival Opera and performs regularly around the country with Colin for Music in Hospitals & Care.
