Saturday 13th of August 7.30 pm we have Emotion Works presenting Verdi’s La Traviata.
This is the sort of concert you rarely hear, classical musician & a singer of traditional music performing together. The styles are so very different that such performers rarely, if ever, perform together. However, all music has it’s connections, all musical genres have nicked stuff from each other & this is what these musicians find so interesting. in this concert you will hear versions of traditional songs & tunes performed by classical musicians & songs from the classical repertory sung in a classical style. Who said ....ne’re the twain shall meet.
