Whilst browsing the web to see what other tenors have been top of the UK Classical Charts, I came across the Wiki page of Jonathan Ansell. Seems he’s held the accolade of youngest tenor ever to hold this position. Ansell was 26 at the time.
As you all know ‘our’ Jonathan is only 19 and now holds the position of top of the UK Classical Charts this week (unless anyone can find evidence of someone younger). He’s now the youngest ever!
I do hope ROAR (his management team) and his PR make an effort to ensure this information is supplied to all entertainment and music media. It’s a very important accolade for ‘our boy’.
The image above is from Bjarne Hemmingsen who travelled, along with his wife Bente, from Denmark to see Jonathan in the Bridgwater Hall, Manchester on Saturday evening. We’re so lucky to have such superb photographs made freely available to us. Thanks Bjarne.
