The Corvus Consort looks forward to a mini-tour of concerts in south-west England, in collaboration with instrumental duo Music on the Edge.
Over the long weekend of 22-24 October, the Consort will give three performances in three days, beginning with a sell-out concert for Music on the Quantocks in Somerset, before going on to The Centre, Newlyn, in Cornwall and the Sundays@Six series in Gidleigh, Devon, curated by Music on the Edge.
These will be the first ever live performances of this collaborative programme, after the debut appearance was repeatedly postponed during the national Coronavirus lockdowns in 2020. During the first lockdown, the musicians of Corvus and Music on the Edge instead produced a virtually-recorded video which was released as part of The Sixteen’s Sounds Sublime Online Festival in July 2020.
The two ensembles have built a collaborative project which they look forward to presenting in concert and on disc in the coming seasons.
Set in the picturesque Whiddon Parishes of North Dartmoor in rural Devon, the Festival will feature three days of vocal and chamber music, running 10-12 September. Events will take place in the Dartmoor villages of Chagford, Gidleigh, Throwleigh and Drewsteignton, taking the four villages’ beautiful churches as venues.
In their Ensemble-in-Residence role, the Corvus Consort will feature in several of the Festival’s events, including a double-bill evening concert, two church services, and the Festival’s final celebratory concert.
Since coming together to produce a remotely-recorded video during the first Coronavirus lockdown in summer 2020, the two ensembles have built a collaborative project which they look forward to presenting in concert and on disc in the coming seasons.
Their concert at the Winchfield Festival will take place on Friday 13th August at 6.00pm, to a live audience in the Festival Marquee. Tickets go on sale to the public from 8th May.
