Part of the Russell Watson Magnificent Buildings Concert Series.

Come join multi-award winning tenor Russell Watson accompanied by world renowned pianist/ arranger/ writer Mike Moran in the magnificent setting of Ely Cathedral. This will be a magical evening with classic songs old and new, together with a selection of hits from his illustrious career.

Russell Watson never imagined he would someday be hailed as one of the world’s greatest classical singers. Since being described by the New York Times as a performer “who sings like Pavarotti and entertains the audience like Sinatra” he subsequently released ten studio albums, each one receiving more critical acclaim than the last. His debut album The Voice shot up the UK charts where he held the number one spot for a world record 52 weeks. At the same time, Russell held the number one spot in the USA, making him the first British male to hold the accolade of a simultaneous transatlantic number one. His second studio album Encore soon followed, it became an even greater success selling almost two million copies worldwide. During this period Russell was rewarded with various awards including four Classical Brits.

Russell has sold more than 7 million albums and performed for Her Majesty The Queen, The Pope and two US Presidents. Captivating to watch and enchanting to listen to, Russell continues to wow audiences with his enigmatic and entertaining live performances.
