Well known soprano Charlotte de Rothschild has returned to Lane End Conference Centre to perform in a special concert titled Music For A Summer Day.
Charlotte performed for a select group of Japanese visitors, local business people, staff and friends of the Buckinghamshire-based Conference Centre.
This was her first appearance at Lane End since the 2011 concert in aid of victims of the Tohoku earthquake in Japan.
The event was organised by Teruko Iwanaga OBE, chairperson of Lane End Conference Centre and CEO of its sister company EJEF (The Euro Japanese Exchange Foundation).
Ms Iwanaga said: “It was a great pleasure to welcome Charlotte back to Lane End.
“The singing was as beautiful as ever and everyone commented on our facilities and the peaceful surroundings.”
Ms de Rothschild was accompanied by acclaimed harpist, Danielle Perrett. The successful duo has performed together since 1993 in countries across the globe including France, South Korea, the USA and Japan.
Charlotte de Rothschild was one of the first foreigners to record a complete album of traditional Japanese songs. Her music is known internationally and she sings in 17 different languages.
She is a descendant of the famous Rothschild family line thought to be one of the most influential families of the 18th century.
Her best known recital programme - Family Connections - includes songs composed by ancestors, friends and teachers of the family dating back over the past 200 years.
A few days before her concert at Lane End she performed these songs at Waddesdon Manor - a de Rothschild estate near the Buckinghamshire conference venue.
