New Zealand born soprano, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, has been appointed as the new patron of Cardiff Singer of the World.

She succeeds Dame Joan Sutherland, who passed away in October last year.

Te Kanawa’s appointment is seen as good news for the biannual competition, which recently announced a series of funding cuts by BBC Wales “due to challenging financial circumstances”.

Cardiff Singer of the World 2011 is due to take place at venues across the city between 12 and 19 June.

This year’s line-up of competitors will include the 28-year-old tenor, John Pierce, who won the Welsh Singers Competition 2010.
