Not wanting to tempt fate, but with a fair wind, we hope to be flinging open our doors once more on Saturday 5th June (see below). Meanwhile we continue to produce digital content behind closed doors, to keep you entertained, and to support emerging artists.
LAST WEEK AT CLONTER
You may recall us sharing with you a recording of the pianist, Giulia Contaldo, from the RNCM, who was helping us promote Clonter as a recording studio. Well, she was so pleased with the recording, which she cites as having helped her be selected to take part in the Leeds International Piano Competition (63 contestants out of 300)! that she offered to give us another concert to share with you.
Clonterbrook Music Room Recital Series – Erin Rossington – Digital Outreach Saturday 24th April, 7pm
Clonter is committed to continuing to provide as many opportunities for emerging artists as possible, and to that end Clonter is delighted to welcome back Soprano (Formerly a Mezzo-Soprano) Erin Rossington, to start the 2021 recital series.
Grant Gordy & Ben Somers – Digital Outreach Saturday 8th May, 7pm
Due to Covid-19 Grant Gordy & Ben Somers were unable to come, as planned, in 2020, but we are delighted to be able to share with you their transatlantic collaboration, in a specially recorded half hour show for a Clonter audience, thanks to the powers of technology.
Barber of Seville Thursday 15th July – Saturday 24th July
This production of Rossini’s “sizzling” comic opera will highlight the use of disguise as a means to find confidence, acceptance and status, and the clash of old-fashioned perceptions of femininity colliding with the modern view. The opera will be set in a psychological space, where time & locations ran rotate quickly from stifling comfortable confinement to a Barber’s shop where fresh ideas & invention proliferate.
The opera will be sung in Italian with specially adapted English sur-titles. 7 Artists will perform in 6 fully staged performances. Two pre-performance talks by the director will give an insight into the creation of the piece and contextual background.
