The Vintage Magazine is delighted to report on a special performance by Carly Paoli for the Chelsea Pensioners at Royal Hospital Chelsea.
Carly Paoli, the rising star of the classical music world, performed a special concert for the Chelsea Pensioners on Friday 26th January 2018. The private performance, which took place in the Pensioners’ Club at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, was a special preview of Carly’s forthcoming concert at Cadogan Hall on 15th February 2018.
“I often see the Pensioners out and about in Chelsea and wanted to invite them to my concert at Cadogan Hall in February. When I realised that, for some, it might be too difficult for mobility reasons I suggested taking the concert to them” said Carly. “It was a thrill and honour to perform for so many of the Pensioners, and to thank them for the contribution and sacrifice they have made for their country.”
The acclaimed English singer – who can count Pope Francis and Prince Charles amongst her fans and who has sung, several times, with both Andrea Bocelli and José Carreras – performed a selection of familiar and iconic songs, including ‘A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square’, ‘I Could Have Danced All Night’ and ‘The White Cliffs of Dover’, as well as songs from her celebrated album ‘Singing My Dreams’.
