Dust Busters Light Orchestra
Friday, November 6, 2015
Fota Island, Carrigtwohill, Co. Cork
I will be conducting this concert on Friday, do come along and enjoy the fun!
On Friday, 6 November, Fota House is delighted to welcome The Dust Busters Light Orchestra for its inaugural visit.
The DBLO takes its name and its origin from the Cork Bealtaine Festival initiative “Blow the Dust Off your Trumpet” in 2010. It is an amateur orchestra that plays to professional standards under its Musical Director well-known cellist IIse de Ziah.
At full strength, the orchestra has 22 members playing violin, viola, cello, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, accordion, guitar, bass guitar, drums and percussion.
The musical repertoire spans two centuries of light music and the Orchestra play with a passion which communicates the versatility of their repertoire, including Viennese waltzes, Latin American tunes, evergreen standards, classic pop, rock and roll, film themes and jazz.
The Orchestra has had a busy year playing:
• Outdoors at Doneraile Park, Cobh, Mahon and Midleton (Farmers’ Markets), and Patrick street and Glounthaune (St. Patrick’s Day):
• Indoors at Vienna Woods Hotel, Royal Cork Yacht Club, St. Patrick’s Special School Montenotte, Fernhill House Hotel Clonakilty, Bus Áras (Culture Night), and most recently the Rochestown Park Hotel (Rotary International Ball).
