A Musical Sense of Place

Professor Chris Green

A six week course of lectures, Fridays 10.30 – 12.30  beginning 28th April
At the Ipswich Institute, 15 Tavern Street, Ipswich

The waves crashing on the beach at Aldeburgh or on the north Cornwall rocks, Maypole dancing
in a West Yorkshire village, a bulldog falling into the River Severn – all these events have
found their way into music. So join this 6 session musical journey round England and explore
how particular places have been reflected in music and composers have adjusted to where
they are living. Join Gustav Holst and Ralph Vaughan Williams as they trudge through the Essex countryside, or Elgar riding his beloved bicycle across the Malvern Hills. No prior musical knowledge
is required and students will get a chance after week 1 to decide which regions to ‘visit’.
The lectures will be illustrated by appropriate music, photographs and DVDs.

Course fee:  £32  (Institute members £27).
Places can be booked at the Institute Library Desk tel: 01473 253992
