Fota House proudly presents Cork Light Orchestra


The CLO has had a busy 2018 playing at festivals in Ballymaloe House and Fitzgerald House, on the Bandstand in Cobh, in Doneraile Park, at various Farmers’ Markets and in Cork City Gaol for Culture Night, in addition to various private events.

The Orchestra was formed by a group of enthusiastic amateur and semi-professional musicians who had varying experience of other musical settings. Their Musical Director is well known cellist Ilse de Ziah. She has conducted the group for over three years, and arranged a number of pieces which highlight the Orchestra’s unique instrumentation.

Celebrated singer Fiona Kennedy will join the Cork Light Orchestra at its much anticipated Concert in Fota House.

So get in the car or hop on the train to Fota and join us with a complimentary glass of wine for what promises to be another great evening of music at Fota House!

The CLO will perform at Fota House on Friday, February 22nd at 8pm. Tickets: €20.
