Songs of Suffrage: music, readings & exhibition of Live Music & Concerts

songs_of_suffrage_music_readings__exhibition_of


A concert of music and readings with exhibition of suffrage composers, 1900-1930

Music by members of the Berkeley Ensemble with Dr Kate Kennedy, broadcaster and historian (narrator). The IHR and Senate House Library host a chamber concert featuring the work of three women composers active in the suffrage movement – together with readings from their diaries and letters, and from those of fellow suffrage campaigners. The concert will include music by Ethel Smyth (1958-1944) and Rebecca Clarke (1886-1979), who were prominent suffragists and members of the Society of Women Musicians, and by Dorothy Howell (1898-1982) whose work was regularly premièred at the Proms from 1919, but is now rarely heard. The concert will be accompanied by an exhibition of scores, diaries and letters written by these and other women composers from the period, drawn from the Senate House Library collection and Dorothy Howell's archive - with kind permission from Merryn and Columb Howell, Dorothy's niece and nephew.
