LINC was thrilled to be able to hold our Divas event at the glorious Pittville Pump Rooms. With such a magnificent setting, this evening promised to be a glorious affair. Following a glass of fizz and a welcome from sponsors, Willans LLP, the evening of musical entertainment commenced. Cheryl Brandish, Melanie Hoadley and John Hobbs from Cornwall’s Duchy Opera opened with Soave sia il vento from Mozart’s Cosi Fan Tutti followed by a selection of arias before the starter was served. They were accompanied by Paul Drayton on the grand piano.
The evening consisted of a wonderful array of recognisable arias sang between courses. Favourites from the operas such as Carmen, La Boheme and The Magic Flute were interspersed with more modern arrangements from Gerswhin.
This was a wonderful event and we very much hope to welcome Cheryl back to another LINC function.
