Jeni will perform a stunning repertoire of Opera and Musical Show favourites, including ‘I could have danced all night’ from My Fair Lady, ‘Climb Ev’ry Mountain’ from The Sound of Music and Puccini’s O Mio Babbino Caro. Jeni’s powerful soprano voice will also lead the audience in the rousing finale featuring Jerusalem, Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory.

Marian Livingstone, Chairman of MKCO said: “Jeni is excited to be working with our International Music Director Damian Iorio in Milton Keynes, at our amazing Proms in Campbell Park, which goes from strength to strength each year. We are delighted to present such quality performers to our MK audiences. This year we have also enhanced the sound and lighting quality, installed a big screen to bring the audience closer to the performance and there is a new twist with the dramatic firework display at the end.”
