Lesley Garrett to perform at Manchester Live! 2013

Conference and meeting buyers planning to attend the Manchester Live! 2013 destination showcase next month will be treated to a live performance by English soprano singer and musician, Leslie Garrett.

Garrett made her name through unforgettable opera performances around the world and has enjoyed a diverse career on both stage and screen, notably for her impact on ‘cross-over’ music.

She sang the British national anthem on the Champs-Élysées in Paris last year after Bradley Wiggins won the Tour de France and has recently returned to opera with the monodrama La Voix humaine for Opera North.

Garrett will follow the success of Russell Watson, Alison Moyet and Mica Paris - who have all performed at previous Manchester Live! events.

Paul Simpson, managing director of Visit Manchester, said: “We’re delighted that Lesley Garrett will be performing at Manchester Live! 2013. She is a universally known and well-respected singer and we’re sure she’ll be a hit with our guests.

“Pre-registration for this year’s showcase is going well and we’re excited about showing attendees what Manchester has to offer conference and meeting buyers.”

Manchester Live! will take place during The Meetings Show UK on Wednesday, 10 July at BAFTA, 195 Piccadilly.
