Classic Brit Award nominee brings the X-Factor to Classics in the Park 2019

Classical Brit Award nominee Jonathan Ansell.

Classical Brit Award nominee Jonathan Ansell has been confirmed as the special guest to sing at Classics In The Park taking place on 6th July this year. 

Jonathan is one of the UK’s most admired tenors who rose to fame after being part of the first X-Factor in 2004 with the pop-opera group G4. Since then, with over 2 million albums sold, Jonathan is an internationally acclaimed artist with two chart topping albums. He’s performed at venues such as The Royal Albert Hall, the Classical Brits and The Festival of Remembrance in front of Her Majesty The Queen, to name but a few. 

Jonathan said: “I’m delighted to be a part of Classics In The Park. The atmosphere at an evening like this is always wonderful and I’m looking forward to singing my own set but also being part of the finale. Also, I’ll be singing possibly the world’s best known piece of classical music with the orchestra which will be such a thrill.”

Jonathan joins Mezzo Soprano Beth MacKay and Baritone Paul Gibson for this ‘Last night of the proms’ style event full of popular classical tunes played by the Classics Concert Orchestra lead by acclaimed Music Director Andrew Penny.

Executive Producer and Host of Classics, Blair Jacobs said: “To have a singer with Jonathan’s talent and skill is a real privilege for us. He’s admired across the world and has sung with some of the best in the business. His fantastic voice coupled with his charming personality, will help make Classics ’19 such a treat for everyone.”

Classics In The Park takes place in the beautiful former Botanical Gardens at Hymers College in Hull on July 6th. The evening of popular classical music culminates in a traditional finale alongside a spectacular firework display. Advance tickets are available now priced £21 and can be bought from the website
