Lesley Garrett to perform Isle of Wight show

British opera star Lesley Garrett is to sing live in a show on the Isle of Wight.

She will be performing alongside a massed choir, which will include island residents, at the upcoming Isle of Arts festival.

The event, which is being held on the island for the first time this year, will see the 45-strong Medina High Community Choir, the Community Glee Club, the Bournemouth Male Voice Choir and the Hart Male Voice Choir team up for the concert.

According to a report in the Isle of Wight County Press, the event will be hosted at Salisbury Gardens in Ventnor on April 16th 2011, with more than 100 singers expected to be taking part.

Gillian Jenner of Isle of Arts said: "We are absolutely delighted to get a singer of the calibre of Lesley and so many choirs together on one stage.

"It is a terrific coup for the festival."

Garrett has enjoyed success with albums such as When I Fall in Love, I Will Wait for You and So Deep is the Night during her musical career.
