Classic BRITS

All posts tagged Classic BRITS

Another UK summer concert has just been added to Alfie Boe’s schedule – Alfie will appear at Henley’s By The River Festival on 11 August 2018.

The festival is in association with Classic FM and will also feature Sir Karl Jenkins, classical guitarist Milos and, I suspect most popularly, soprano Laura Wright, who toured with Alfie back in 2011/12.  Ever since, fans have been waiting to see the pair back together again, so I hope we see Alfie and Laura duetting.  Their version of Barcelona is regularly cited as one of Alfie’s best live songs.

Tickets are on sale now – click here to buy.

In news announced on Friday, Alfie will team up with Michael Ball again to sing at the Classic BRIT Awards, held at the Royal Albert Hall on 13 June and televised on 17 June.  Click here for tickets.

September is over half way through and that means that it is nearly Alfie Boe’s birthday!  Yes, on September 29th, Alfie will be 43…and getting younger every year!

If you would like to post Alfie a birthday message, pop it in the form below and it will be featured on a new Message to Alfie page next week:

This video is from the Classic BRIT awards in 2013 and I chose this video as it was just a few days past Alfie’s birthday and a group of fans were there to see this breathtaking performance and give him our own birthday card.  Amazingly, he then tweeted a thank you alongside a picture of the card…still gives me goosebumps thinking about it now.

Definitely one of my top Alfie moments!

This year, as he has done for the previous five years, Alfie is fundraising for music charity Nordoff Robbins in honour of his birthday (click here to find out more about the charity). Overall, Alfie fans have raised over £8600 and of this year’s fundraiser, Nordoff Robbins CEO, Julie Whelan, said

We are thrilled that our long-standing ambassador Alfie has chosen to dedicate his birthday to us at Nordoff Robbins again this year. This initiative has raised crucial funds for our services and has really helped to raise awareness of our work over the years. Alfie first started supporting Nordoff Robbins in 2011 and we are so proud to be able to say that we have his continued support to this day.

If you would like to donate something to celebrate Alfie’s birthday, click here to go through to Nordoff Robbins – you can choose Alfie Boe as a reason for donating.  Let’s see if we can raise more than the £1719 we raised last year!  Go Alfie Boe fans!
