Denied a scholarship from the Royal College of Music for being a woman who ‘will only get married and never write another note’, Elizabeth Maconchy (1907-1994) became one of the most substantial and respected composers of her time, with a large and important body of songs. This lecture recital features songs by Maconchy and by Benjamin Britten.
This event is part of a series:
We're thrilled to announce our spring festival, Spring Song, which sees us back fully in person at the Holywell Music Room and in the superb new concert hall at Trinity College, with a four-day feast of song recitals, study events, auditions for our new and enhanced Young Artist Programme, and more. We cannot wait to see you there!
