Daniel Shelvey & Dylan Perez

Wed. 11th January 2017

January's Chester Celebrity Concert features two rising young artists - baritone Daniel Shelvey accompanied by Dylan Perez, piano.  They perform an exciting programme of works by Schubert, Schumann, Barber and Vaughan Williams.

Liverpool born baritone Daniel Shelvey is 23 and has just finished his fifth year of study at the Royal Northern College of Music under the tutelage of David Maxwell Anderson. His studies were kindly funded by the RNCM and an Independent Opera scholarship. Daniel will continue his studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama under Robert Dean. Daniel is a Jerwood Young Artist 2014 and is supported by the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

Dylan Perez, 26, is in his second year in the Artist Master's Program at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where he studies piano accompaniment with Pamela Lidiard and Julius Drake. He also holds degrees from the University of Michigan, where he studied with Martin Katz. He has participated in The Song Continues at Carnegie Hall, New York and Opera Bastille, Paris. He has worked closely with Graham Johnson on two Song Guild recitals and was subsequently awarded the Paul Hamburger Prize for accompaniment. Last summer, he attended the Franz Schubert Institut in Baden bei Wien, Austria. His studies are generously supported by the Norman Gee Foundation.

This concert is supported by The Countess of Munster Trust.
