A soprano singer from Suffolk has completed another of her globe-trotting adventures, performing for presidents and appreciative audiences in Asia, Europe and South America.
Former Framlingham College student Christina Johnston said she was “amazed” by the welcome she received during her three-week orchestral tour of Chile, Peru and Ecuador.
“The people were wonderful and very appreciative audiences,” she added. “I hope to go back there and sing for them again.”
Christina, now a resident of the Czech Republic, returned home following her tour, where she was asked to perform before President Miloš Zeman, who described her as an “angel” after a concert in Prague in 2014.
For her latest performance at the President’s castle, she was accompanied by Boni Pueri, one of Europe’s most famous musical ensembles.
