A Story of Cornwall at Port Eliot
October 28, 2017 @ 7:15 pm - 9:30 pm
A Story of Cornwall will be held on October 28th 7.15- 9.30 pm at Port Eliot
The beautifully imposing Round Room at Port Eliot will be filled with music of myths and legends as the acclaimed Canoryon Lowen choir interpret some of our county’s most magical stories.
Canoryon Lowen is one of Cornwall’s most innovative and versatile choirs. A Story of Cornwall is directed by Nick Hart and Janet Wright and performs music from a very wide range of styles and genres.
The choral writing in A Story of Cornwall interprets the myths, history and culture of this extraordinary county in music, which is in turn lyrical, foot-tapping, classical and contemporary – and is infused with a passion for the beauty of its landscapes. It is narrated by local actor Kevin Kibbey and illustrated throughout with poetic photography.
Come and join us for a night that will cast you back to a time when the Lords and Ladies of the past would hold lavish banquets and dances for hundreds of guests. A cappella music and a warm welcome will greet you as you wander through the main rooms of the house.
Marvel at the treasures inside, soak up the atmosphere and enjoy a glass of wine or warming autumnal punch at Port Eliot’s bar in the Dining Room. Delicious complimentary nibbles by house cook Kay will be served before the main performance of A Story of Cornwall.
Doors open at 7.15pm. Tickets are limited, so to avoid disappointment; please do not hesitate to book yours; https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/porteliotestate
