Show demonstrates St Conan’s potential
ST CONAN’S Kirk, Lochawe, was the venue for a theatrical treat on Saturday night when Classical Musicians Scotland performed the Ivor Novello story.
Last year this production received excellent reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe festival.
In the wonderful script by John Cairney, Ivor Novello’s story and songs are brought to life by an actor, two singers and a pianist.
The audience enjoyed an evening of nostalgia, romance and 1930s showbiz glamour. The cast was delighted to find that St Conan’s, with its brass candelabra, atmospheric lighting and exceptional acoustics, was an ideal setting.
The story unfolded against a background of 1930s furnishings, rich velvets and period charm.
Rosie Campbell-Preston, vice chairwoman of the Friends of St Conan’s, said: ‘ We are delighted this professional group agreed to perform here.
‘It’s been a marvellous evening and has once again demonstrated the huge potential of St Conan’s. We will be encouraging more acts to visit.’
