Opera Alba at Ardgour Memorial Hall
The glorious world of opera right on your doorstep with a touring quintet of the finest singers and their multi-talented pianist conjuring up the sounds and colours of some of the world’s best loved songs and arias. Compact and luxury entertainment!
Opera Alba will provide you with an evening of well sung, well presented and thoroughly enjoyable music from the world of opera. Whether or not you’ve ever been to an opera, you’re in for a treat with Opera Alba. Catriona, Christine, Christian and Steven will perform some of opera’s most favourite tunes, ably accompanied by Derek Clark. There’ll be arias, duets, trios and quartets, all sung in a light, relaxed and engaging style. You’ll enjoy some of opera’s most captivating melodies by Puccini, Verdi, Mozart, Donizetti, Gounod, Bizet, Offenbach et al, sung with a nice mix of informality but with plenty of expertise. The quartet will introduce each number and tell you a little about the background of the characters and their stories.
Ardgour Memorial Hall
ARDGOUR MEMORIAL HALL is situated in the traditional crofting village of Clovullin, ¾ mile from the Corran Ferry, on the shores of Loch Linnhe looking down-loch to Lismore and Mull, and north towards Ben Nevis. Built in 1932 the Hall has recently been extensively refurbished including dancing friendly sprung wooden flooring! The Hall consists of a large hall with a raised stage area and a small hall with an attached but separate kitchen. Both halls have high vaulted ceilings and the main hall is strung with a canopy of fairy lights. We have a capacity for 100 standing or 70 seated. A bar will be provided for each of the Scotland on Tour gigs selling real ale from our local brewery Ardgour Ales. Although we have no lighting or PA system Ardgour is lucky to have the fabulous Watercolour Music recording studios just 6 miles or so from the Hall. The Hall is run on behalf of the community by a volunteer group directors. We very much look forward to welcoming the SoT artists and music lovers to our village and Hall.
