The Season Ahead at Carnglaze Caverns:
Sunny September is here once again
Weve done with the weather
Weve had enough rain
But we bit our tongues
& we didnt complain
Because we knew that the sun
Would be back in our skies
When the emmets went home
& the schools went back
We do know our sun
& Its funny like that!
September has arrived & we can all breath a deep sigh and ready ourselves for Autumn! We all look forward to the first weekend in September as it heralds the start of our Autumn Season ~ Have you got our new brochure? Its purple & has the Animals on the front cover! Call us if you cant find one because you dont want to miss:
On Sunday 5th at 6pm we have our annual Carnglaze Classical Picnic ~
Two rising cross-over stars, soprano Phillippa Lusty and tenor Thomas Spencer-Wortley come together for this charity event along with nationally acclaimed Bodmin College Jazz Orchestra and guests.
Phillippa returns to her home county to raise funds for the Precious Lives appeal with an afternoon of breathtaking music in the magical setting of Carnglaze Caverns. With her unique style and smooth sounds, Phillippa is a pioneering singer /songwriter in the Crossover genre. This 22 year olds popularity is growing across all age groups. She is currently working on her first album.
Tonight's special guest is classical crossover artist, Thomas Spencer-Wortley. Described by the Sunday Express as '...the solo version of Il Divo...', English tenor Thomas Spencer-Wortley has wowed audiences with his powerful and charismatic performances. Thomas has performed with the greats including Katherine Jenkins and Beverley Knight.
Supporting these two exceptional artists is The Bodmin College Jazz Orchestra whose epic concert here in 2009 helped them on their way to America! We are thrilled to welcome them back here & welcome home!
