Fota House proudly presents CORK LIGHT ORCHESTRA
The Cork Light Orchestra (CLO) makes an acclaimed return to Fota House on Friday 22nd February 2019. It will play a selection of its light instrumental repertoire, which is inspired by the salon, jazz and light orchestras of the 1920s and 30s. Audiences often sing along to well-known hits of more recent years. They may even be seen waltzing to Viennese classics and jiving to pop medleys!
The CLO has had a busy 2018 playing at festivals in Ballymaloe House and Fitzgerald House, on the Bandstand in Cobh, in Doneraile Park, at various Farmers’ Markets and in Cork City Gaol for Culture Night, in addition to various private events.
The Orchestra was formed by a group of enthusiastic amateur and semi-professional musicians who had varying experience of other musical settings. Their Musical Director is well known cellist Ilse de Ziah. She has conducted the group for over three years, and arranged a number of pieces which highlight the Orchestra’s unique instrumentation.
Celebrated singer Fiona Kennedy will join the Cork Light Orchestra at its much anticipated Concert in Fota House
So get in the car or hop on the train to Fota and join us with a complimentary glass of wine for what promises to be another great evening of music at Fota House!
Date: Friday 22 February 2019 Time: 8 pm Tickets: €20.00.
