Winning the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World title, Andrei said: “I’m very excited about it.” He sang arias by Bizet, Rachmaninov and Donizetti, alongside the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. “I chose music to describe the different colours in my voice,” said Andrei.
Without doubt, Andrei will be thrilled to be recreating the prize-winning formula, performing again with the orchestra at the BBC Proms in the Park this autumn.Book Tickets Now
