What a week! Bryan and Philip were invited to the launch party of Nadine Benjamin's CD on Wednesday, and then mentioned by her on Radio 3 on Thursday. Some of us in Tonic worked with Nadine in 2011 (see photo opposite) and 2012, and it is great to see the progress she has made. She makes her debut with English National Opera in October. We can recommend her CD (buy or stream) details at www.nadinebenjamin.com.
You can find the Radio 3 programme 'In Tune' at www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00008fy
In the programme Nadine sings Vissi D'Arte at about 6:00, there is a full interview at about 1:14:00 (includes mention of Tonic) and she sings Summertime at about 1:50:00. In our eyes she is already a star, both for her singing and her lovely personality. Do listen and, if possible, buy her album.
