A Summer’s Song: BSU Master of Music Singer-Songwriter Showcase – FREE
Join us for a special Summer Up Late featuring live, original music performances from a collection of emerging songwriters from around the world. Each performer has studied, or is studying, their Master of Music in Songwriting at Bath Spa University, and has remained in or close to Bath as they embark on their music and songwriting careers. With musical genres ranging from American folk to emotive ballads, the songwriter showcase will celebrate some of the most exciting sounds and songs to emerge from the city, whilst introducing home-grown, fresh talent. The museum and café will be open throughout, making this a not-to-be missed after-hours experience.

Our next Holburne Up Late will take place on 25 August and 30 September.

In the Still of the Night
Sep 12 @ 1:10 pm – 1:50 pm
In the Still of the Night  @ The Holburne Museum

Let us dream! It is the hour…This recital brings together songs from across the centuries that are reflections on the power of reverie and the nature of dreams. From Handel’s salutation to Morpheus the god of sleep, through the late romantic fantasies of Liszt, Strauss and Hahn, to the silver screen glamour of nights with Ivor Novello and Cole Porter, the music will celebrate our fascination with dreaming and the resurrection of the morning. This recital is presented by Wells based soprano Catherine Greenwell, fellow of Trinity College, London for music performance and Michael Cockerham, former director of music at the Royal High School in Bath and current Trinity College examiner and chairman of the RSCM Bristol and Swindon area.
