South Green Concerts revel in Indian Summer

Throughout September, Southwold music-lovers have continued to enjoy the South Green Soirees in balmy late summer sun.

We plan to move these events indoors when the weather finally turns, but we haven’t yet found a way around the various issues surrounding gatherings indoors… yet… But if we can find a way to make this work, we will be able to continue providing live music for Southwold throughout the autumn and winter months, both in person and via online streamings.

To be kept informed of news on this please email [email protected] and we shall add you to our mailing list. We also post regularly on social media, including Next Door.

The South Green events are very informal and anyone is welcome to come along – several children under the age of 10 enjoyed the last one! There is no charge or ticketing, but a collection is taken to support the performers.

Launch: 100 Years of British Song

On 16th October, SOMM Recordings will launch the first in a revealing three-volume survey of One Hundred Years of British Song with tenor James Gilchrist and pianist Nathan Williamson. Compiled to reflect the rich variety of British song, Volume 1 throws a spotlight on composers who made a considerable contribution to the song repertoire, although this is often highly neglected on account of their extraordinary success in other genres.

All four featured composers – Gustav HolstRebecca ClarkeIvor Gurney and Frank Bridge – were born in the late 1800s and lived through the horrors of the First World War and the extraordinary social, cultural and political upheaval that followed.
