A musical post

This is Moll taken last weekend when we reviewed the lovely Helsbury Park near Camelford. Not that she's a poser or anything....

This time last year three of us formed a breakaway group from our choir which we ended up calling the Hipflasks. Since then we’ve rehearsed on many an afternoon and evening, and forged a close bond between the three of us. Good friends are so valuable but good ones that sing must be even better.

Once a year Paul organises a singing weekend at Prussia Cove, where the International Music Festival, and other musical events, take place. It’s a big rambling house that can sleep 25 people and the surrounding cottages absorb the rest of us – last year there were 65 of us who gather to share food, wine, dogs and music for the weekend. We have four workshops which are always a joy to attend, we meet new people and always have a fabulous – if exhausting – time.

I'm off on Friday - six of us are sharing the Lodge as we did last year and all really looking forward to it. As we sang in a round last week, “Make new friends and cherish the old. Some are silver and some are gold.”

Hi Sue,
I must be on your wavelength because I was just going to ask about your music since you hadn't mentioned the choir for a while - and now you've posted this interesting update.
We were in Cornwall recently and found ourselves down at Prussia Cove. We came upon a very big atmospheric old house at a sharp bend in the road before turning down into the parking area for the cove. Would that have been the place you mention?
Your musical weekend sounds great fun. Hope everyone has a wonderful time - and good luck to the Hipflasks. Rx

Rena - how extraordinary! Yes that is Prussia Cove but I wish we'd been able to meet! Next time please get in touch. Yes the weekend is great fun - very full on but great!

Rena George said...

Thanks, Sue. I'll look forward to that. Rx

I love when you post pictures of Moll. It does look like she's singing. Perhaps she's serenading Buster cat!

Flowerpot said...

Kim - she certainly won't be serenading Buster - they don't ahve that sort of relationship!

Moll is such a beauty! And not a poser? I reckon she's the best poser in Cornwall ;-)

Hope you have a lovely time away.
