Tartu-born Madara Vilson will give her solo debut concert When Lights Are Low in The Matcham Room at The Hippodrome Casino in association with the British Lung Foundation.
During the 1,5-hour long concert, Madara and her band consisting of seven members, including violin and accordion, will perform bossa novas and rumbas in English, Russian romances and popular songs, German retro-pop and French chanson, creating an internationally romantic atmosphere in one of London’s most elegant venues.
For the young singer whose repertoire consists of 6 languages and who herself speaks 5 languages, the concert will be an opportunity to showcase her love for the music of many different nationalities, at the same time offering a large-scale concert to the Estonian and Latvian communities in London.
The concert which will be held in association with the British Lung Foundation will take place on the 5th of May, 7.30pm (doors 6.30pm), at the Matcham Room of The Hippodrome Casino in Leicester Square.
Madara is the winner and laureate of many Estonian singing contests, e.g. The Song Carousel 2006 (“Laulukarussell”) and Song of Stars 2006 (“Tähtede laul”), having performed solo in venues such as The Estonian National Opera, Vanemuine Theatre in Tartu and Dzintari Concert Hall in Jurmala, Latvia. In October 2012 Madara had the honour of performing solo with the most famous Latvian and post-Soviet composer of our time, Maestro Raimonds Pauls at the Riga Russian Drama Theatre, in November of the same year reaching the finals of the prestigious Russian singing contest “Grand Prix of Saint Petersburg”.
Madara has found her niche as a singer of multilingual entertainment music and is currently finishing her Bachelor studies in Jazz Vocals at the London College of Music in London under the tutelage of one of Britain’s top jazz singers – Mr Iain Mackenzie. Madara is also the current principal Music teacher at the Estonian School in London.
