Songs and Duets of Love and (In)fidelity

The Karaka Collective is a new ensemble of old friends: pianist and music director Lindy Tennent-Brown, mezzosoprano Wendy Dawn Thompson and baritone James Harrison. All three have glittering international careers in Europe. The concert titled ‘Songs and Duets of Love and (In)fidelity’, draws on music from across a wide range of genres, all reflecting on the themes of love discovered, understood, toyed with, relished, released and, occasionally, discarded.
