Medical Maelstrom

…a tincture of song and laughter from three Cornish doctors bursting with talent – if you haven’t seen them before grab the chance!

Michele Sharkey was born in Lanarkshire and began vocal training after completing her medical studies at the University of Glasgow. Her main interest is opera, and major roles range from the consumptive Mimi (La Bohème) to the dagger wielding Queen of the Night (Magic Flute) with Angelica (Suor Angelica), Zerlina (Don Giovanni), Frasquita (Carmen), Olympia (Tales of Hoffman), Anna (Merry Widow), Gretel (Hansel and Gretel) and Adele (Die Fledermaus) in between. Her favourite gigs, however, are with Maelstrom.

Sam Freegard’s enjoyment of being silly on stage developed whilst studying medicine at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London. After moving to Cornwall in 1982, for many years he acted with the West Cornwall Theatre Group at the Minack theatre, including the title role in Macbeth, Leontes in The Winter’s Tale and Randle P McMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Sam sincerely hopes that his appearance with Michele and Anthony does not spoil what might otherwise have been an evening of high class entertainment…..

Anthony Seddon was a boy chorister at King’s College Cambridge, then a music scholar at Clifton College Bristol and then a choral scholar at Magdalen College Oxford where he studied medicine. In the Swinging Sixties (!) he was a member of a close harmony pop group which made several records and TV appearances. He came to Cornwall in 1973 and for several years he sang in Truro Cathedral choir. He was musical director for Duchy Opera’s productions of Café Puccini and La Cenerentola and he has performed extensively as an accompanist.
