The second concert in the Knox College Centennial Concert Series takes place on Friday 5th June at 8.00pm in the Ross Chapel, Knox College, preceded by complimentary drinks in the Main Stairwell. Featuring soprano Nicola Edgecombe and pianist Kemp English it promises to be yet another magical candle-lit event following the ‘glorious’ all Schubert violin and piano concert which launched the series in early May.

Wine, Woman and Song will present some of the cornerstones of late 18th and early 19th century art songs. The concert will include groups of songs by Haydn, Mozart and Schubert and culminate in a performance of Schumann’s song-cycle masterpiece Frauenliebe und -leben (A Woman’s Love and Life). As in the first concert of the series the accompanying instrument will be a rare 1835 square piano by Collard and Collard. A selection of piano solos will compliment the vocal selections.

Nicola Edgecome, who has strong links with Knox College, is one of New Zealand’s leading young sopranos, much in demand in the area of baroque and classical vocal performance. After completing a Bachelor of Music Degree with Honours from the University of Otago majoring in piano and voice, she moved to Wellington where she graduated with a Masters Degree in voice from Victoria University. In 2000 Nicola then relocated to Den Haag, Netherlands to continue her studies and spent three years at the Koninklijk Conservatorium studying with Marius van Altena, Rita Dams, and Kristina Deutekom.

While based in Holland, Nicola performed with many choirs and ensembles, including the International Vocal Academy Den Haag, and Il Concerto Barocco, Amsterdam. As a member of the baroque ensemble Quintus, Nicola was a prizewinner at the Johann Heinrich Schmeltzer Competition, Austria in 2002. She has performed throughout Italy, Germany, Switzerland and Holland and gave solo recitals at the Early Music Festivals in Barcelona, Spain, and Innsbruck, Austria.
Nicola has sung many operatic roles, including Susanna (The Marriage of Figaro), Dido (Dido and Aeneas) and Madame Goldentrill (The Impressario) and The Queen of the Night (The Magic Flute).

Since returning to New Zealand in 2003, Nicola has been in demand as a soloist and a teacher, with performances including Monteverdi Vespers 1610 with Bach Musica New Zealand, Handel’s Messiah with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra, Samson with the Auckland Choral Society and in November 2008 as a soloist with the City of Dunedin Choir in Handel’s Christmas Oratorio.

Tickets for the concert are available from the Knox College Porters’ Lodge or for more information contact John Milnes (03 473 0789; john.milnes@knoxcollege.ac.nz).
