On Tuesday 18th September Laura Wright, an ex Framlingham College student, will perform with Andrea Bocelli at the itunes festival.

The iTunes Festival is at the Roundhouse in London with more than 60 artists performing 30 consecutive nights of brilliant live music. This year's spectacular line-up includes Usher, Jack White, Norah Jones and One Direction, with many more to be announced.

Laura Wright

With more than one million album sales under her belt Laura was one of 2011’s biggest selling classical artists – not to mention the first female singer since Katherine Jenkins to reach Number One in the Classical Chart with her album ‘The Last Rose’.

Laura has just completed a UK tour with acclaimed tenor Alfie Boe and became the first soprano to perform at the Olympic Stadium in March – and performed Ravel’s ‘Bolero‘ with operatic star Noah Stewart on the Dancing On Ice final. 

Laura was then selected to record the new Diamond Jubilee song, ‘Stronger As One’, which HM The Queen mentioned in her Commonwealth Day Message at Westminster Abbey in March where the song was premiered.

Andrea BocelliIn possession of one of the finest voices in the world, Bocelli emerged as a vocal phenomenon in the 1990s and has since gone on to become one of the most successful artists of all time, selling over 65 million albums. Bocelli is the singular, superb voice that opera had been waiting for. By marrying the glorious tradition of operatic singing to the sensibilities and aesthetics of modern music, Bocelli has captured the hearts of audiences across the globe without ever sacrificing the integrity of his art for the sake of popularity.
