Chansons and Sauvignons:
an evening of wine tasting and song
Chansons & Sauvignons recreated an early 20th century private soirée with Mrs Phillippa Peckerton-Smythe playing host. She welcomed all into her luxurious home to explore her husband’s extensive wine cellar with the guidance of her knowledgable butler. Six different wines were sampled that provided challenges for the connoisseur and reassurance for the rookie. They were accompanied by a selection of songs, mélodie and lieder as well as some favourites from the musicals, alongside delectable canapés. The evening definitely educated and amused, whilst taking our audiences wine tasting experience to the next level and all for a great cause…Raising money to bring music to local care homes.
