Glórach hosts famed soprano Regina Nathan

Following on from the sell-out ‘The Hearts of Men’ concert at Abbeyfeale’s Glórach theatre this month, music lovers are now gearing up for the arrival of world-renowned Irish soprano Regina Nathan on July 5.

Having sung at prestigious venues like the Carnegie Hall in New York, Regina has performed opera and Irish songs to audiences the world over, along with popular pieces from artists like Edith Piaf, Leonard Cohen and Janis Ian.

Regina’s incredible voice as well as her interpretation of operatic characters has garnered her much critical acclaim throughout her career.  In recent years, she has toured with the RTÉ Symphony Orchestra as well as performing themed concerts including a memorable tribute to Maria Callas - an American-born Greek soprano.
