Jonathan Veira concert July 19.png

During the Covid lockdown, musician and opera singer Jonathan Veira has been holding live solo concerts live on Facebook every Sunday - and last Sunday he interviewed CoH’s Bex Okotel by phone from Uganda.

You can watch the recording of the interview below, or you can see the whole concert here: and Bex's interview starts at one hour eleven minutes after the start. It lasts just over half an hour, with a break for a JV song halfway through.

Baritone Jonathan celebrates 35 years on the operatic stage this year. He has performed across the globe in a variety of roles and musical styles from Mozart through to John Adams. His considerable vocal and comic talents have resulted in him singing many of the leading comic baritone roles. His weekly Covid concerts are watched by many thousands of viewers.
