Carly Paoli, the rising star of the classical music world, performed a special concert for the Chelsea Pensioners on Friday 26th January 2018. The private performance, which took place in the Pensioners’ Club at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, was a special preview of Carly’s forthcoming concert at Cadogan Hall on 15th February 2018.

‘I often see the Pensioners out and about in Chelsea and wanted to invite them to my concert at Cadogan Hall in February. When I realised that, for some, it might be too difficult for mobility reasons I suggested taking the concert to them’ said Carly. ‘It was a thrill and honour to perform for so many of the Pensioners, and to thank them for the contribution and sacrifice they have made for their country.’

The acclaimed English singer – who can count Pope Francis and Prince Charles amongst her fans and who has sung, several times, with both Andrea Bocelli and José Carreras – performed a selection of familiar and iconic songs, including ‘A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square’, ‘I Could Have Danced All Night’ and ‘The White Cliffs of Dover’, as well as songs from her celebrated album ‘Singing My Dreams’.

Pearse Lally the Sergeant Major at the Royal Hospital said, ‘We were delighted to host Carly at our Chelsea Pensioners’ Club. She put on an excellent show and Pensioners who are not able to travel far were touched that Carly made a special visit to the Royal Hospital to perform just for them. On behalf of the Royal Hospital I would like to thank Carly for her generosity.’

Peter Henry, Pensioner, said ‘It was beautiful. She sounded incredible, a wonderful singer with a beautiful voice. I would love to hear Carly sing in the world-famous chapel here next time and I look forward to seeing her perform at Cadogan Hall.’

Ron Chapple, Pensioner, said ‘The performance was very good. It is wonderful that an international star like that should come here. It was really wonderful entertainment for us.’

Carl Hayhurst, Pensioner, said ‘I enjoyed the concert very much. I enjoy good singing. Carly captivated the audience. You could hear a pin drop.’

Having performed at some of the world’s most iconic venues, including Carnegie Hall, the O2 Arena and the Roman Forum, Carly will be performing her debut UK headline concert at Cadogan Hall, in Chelsea, on February 15th.

She will be joined by Grammy-Award winner, conductor and composer Steven Mercurio, Italian phenomenon Federico Paciotti, world renowned flautist Andrea Griminelli and winners of the BBC’s Songs of Praise Choir of the Year 2016, Tring Park 16, alongside a full orchestra.

The evening will provide an opportunity to experience the emotional, sincere and dramatic performances that have captured audiences wherever the young artist has appeared.
