‘Music that moulded Dinefwr’ – An evening of Baroque music at Newton House
On the evening of Saturday 28 May, Newton House at Dinefwr in Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire will be filled with Baroque music, performed by internationally acclaimed musicians Elizabeth Kenny, Reiko Ichise and Mhairi Lawson in the grand dining room at Newton House.
Where art and music are beautifully entwined, this event is inspired by the architecture of the 17th century house, cared for by National Trust Cymru.
Dinefwr will resound to a specially selected musical programme of lute, viol and voice, specially chosen from the same period of time from which the plasterers were moulding the original 350-year-old ceiling in the house.
Kathryn Campbell, National Trust Cymru Programming and Partnerships Officer at Dinefwr said,
“We are delighted to bring this amazing ensemble of musicians to Dinefwr to celebrate the period in which our ornate ceilings were first installed in Newton House. Set against the historic architecture of Newton House, it will be a feast for the senses of extraordinary music, local produce, beautiful flowers, and visual delights.
We look forward to welcoming musicians of such high international standing to Llandeilo, for an unforgettable evening, which is not to missed by enthusiasts and musical newcomers alike”.
Local food company, Swperbox, will be serving up delicious canapes following the themes of the evening.
Tickets to the event are £25 each and include drinks and canapes at 6.30pm, before the performance starts at 7.30pm.
