The iconic anthems of female superstars are to be celebrated in an uplifting live music show in Nottingham to mark International Women’s Day.

Diva brings together the 50-piece Limelight Orchestra with pop, soul, jazz and musical vocalists for a one-off event at Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall on March 8.

The concert will feature renditions of songs from the most iconic female singers of the last 50 years including Barbra Streisand, Diana Ross, Mariah Carey, Amy Winehouse, Beyoncé and Lizzo, backed by the city’s leading contemporary orchestra.
