Classical superstar, Katherine Jenkins, has announced a trip to the woods next summer when she will be appearing in Thetford Forest, as part of The Forestry Commission's 2008 Forest Tours.

Katherine will be performing with The National Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Anthony Inglis at High Lodge, near Thetford on Saturday July 12.

The concert will be supporting The Forestry Commission's valuable social and environmental programmes.

Re-defining the concept of classical crossover, Katherine has achieved global sales of over three million. Her debut album, 2004's appropriately titled Premiere, was the fastest selling of all time by a Mezzo Soprano, with well over 30,000 copies snapped up in the first week.

Serenade also went to Number 5 in the pop charts and has sold over a half a million copies to date. Katherine's new album 'Rejoice' is released this week.
