Paul Bester is next to perform at The Fridge series of concerts tomorrow night.
The tenor entered the music industry having studied classical music in his native South Africa.
“I won a national singing competition in my final year of school and multiple bursaries for studying music,” he said.
“I studied classical vocal performance and taught voice for a few years. I am also lyric tenor and I enjoy singing early music and oratorio as well as musical and soul performances.”
Bester’s Monday performance will have him take on works by Händel in addition to excerpts from the musical Les Miserables.
Read below for Monday night’s program.
