Busking Tour – Astley Park

Today Outreach Opera visited the very beautiful Astley Park in Chorley to sing for the park folk, enjoying the glorious sunshine. Here’s what one of our listeners thought:

“I was sat eating my sandwich at the cafe when I heard the singing wafting it’s way over to me. I had to investigate to see two extremely talented lasses singing away. Now as a die hard heavy metal fan, opera is not what I usually choose to listen to, but I’m glad I got to hear your singing today. The setting, the weather and even the birds joining in made it a lovely experience. Thank you from this old mosher with bad knees, for a unique experience.” Jackie Porter

Outreach Opera will be performing La Boheme in the Walled Garden on Sept 3rd, so today was a chance to try out the purpose built stage, a beautifully unique space which was just perfect!
