7th July 2010 AN AFTERNOON OF ITALIAN OPERA AND WORLD ................. ........................................CHORAL MUSIC AT THE CIDER FARM

Other than the florally decorated cider apple press by the stage, it was quite difficult to imagine that the beautiful operatic arias and choral music in the films below were performed in what is, for most of the year, the fully working and functional cider barn of Ross Cider & Perry Company. Clementine Lovell had returned to her home to Peterstow from Italy, where she studies opera, as well as teaching languages and music and performing, with her Italian friends to perform a 'Musica concerto d'Italia' to a packed house on Sunday.

Soprano Clementine, tenor, Nicolò Gabelli and pianist Romina Vigne sang arias and performed scenes from operas by Mozart and several Italian composers while local choir, the Branchline Community Choir, conducted by Lizzy Rouse, from Ross-on-Wye sang choral pieces from around the world.

Rather than try to put how fantastic the concert was into words, below are two 10 minute films, part one showing Clementine, Nicolo, Romina and the Branchline Community Choir, the second is a beautiful performance of the death of Mimi from Puccini's La Boheme. Watch them - even if you are not particularly a fan of opera. You will be absolutely amazed at the talent of a local musician, most definitely destined to go far in her field, and by that of both Nicolò and Romina from Italy and the Branchline Choir.
