Young Artists in the City

Flowers in different languages

Artists from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama:
Harriet Burns, soprano
Mimi Doulton, soprano
Victoria Li, soprano
Joanne Tan, piano

This programme is devised by Joanne Tan (Guildhall School). She writes: "Flowers are beautiful. Seeing them make us happy all the time, especially when they are elegantly blooming during the summertime. Have you ever seen flowers speak? As flowers are being transformed into songs, they could speak to us in a million way. We could experience emotions such as love, happiness, sadness and many more. This recital explores flowers being portrayed in different languages. While some are about flowers as a sign or a symbol; some are about flowers as a language". Songs by Schubert, Schumann, Strauss, Faure, Poulenc, Quilter, Britten & many more..

Our Young Artists in the City series is devised by vocal and piano accompaniment students, and recent conservatoires graduates. It gives an opportunity to an aspiring musician to be the driving force behind one of our themed concerts, providing valuable professional development.

From Our Artistic Director

Gavin Roberts, Artistic Director Gavin Roberts, Artistic Director

Song in the City takes classical music out of its comfort zone. Through the genre of song, we aim to revolutionise the relationship between classical musicians and their audiences through imaginative concerts, and social projects.

Song in the City is more than your average classical venue. We programme concerts around inventive and often challenging themes, bringing talented singers and pianists to the heart of the Square Mile, in the intimate and beautiful setting of the Hall at St Botolph without Bishopsgate. Our regular FREE concerts take place on Monday Lunchtime at 1pm (c45 mins).  We are also developing a number of social projects. Check out our latest project here. In late 2015 Song in the City released its very first CD: Voices of London: Songs of the big smoke, which is now available to purchase here.
