HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Clonter kicks off 2019 with the annual Opera Prize Concert, in just over one month’s time – Saturday 2nd February
Are you doing Red January? Not only is exercise proven to be good for mental health, but so is both listening and partaking in musical activities.
This event ticks tons of boxes – You get to cast your own vote (participatory) on who you think should win, having deliberated over a 70 minute supper interval, all introduced by Clonter’s witty compere (educational and entertaining), Isobel Flinn, who now has quite a cult following. So you don’t need any prior knowledge. Just a pair of ears, and a heart. The audience vote acts collectively as one judge on the panel, and you get to hear a wide range of operatic repertoire, so if you are an opera novice, this is a great way to dip your toe in the water (experimental).
In addition Stephen Reynolds will be playing his Clonter Fantasia (someone else who is gaining a bit of a cult following) Two tickets to the first person who can name every opera included. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpg1bKsro2Y
