Hayley Westenra

at Derngate Theatre, Northampton

This event has been and gone.

At the tender age of 24, Hayley Westenra has established herself as one of the most celebrated classical singers in the world. Accompanied by a 25-piece orchestra, Hayley will be bringing her angelic sound to the UK in February and March 2012.

At the age of 12, Westenra entered a professional recording studio to record Walking in the Air, a demo album done for friends and family; only about 1000 copies were made. Some time later, after finishing her album, both Hayley and her sister, Sophie, busked in the Christchurch streets. The pair drew a large crowd, and one woman asked the girls if they had ever recorded anything. This woman turned out to be a journalist with CTV, and asked Hayley to appear on air. A concert promotion company watched the show, and signed her to the Universal New Zealand Label.
