About Song In The City
Song in the City programmes concerts around imaginative themes, bringing talented singers and pianists to the heart of the Square Mile, in the inspiring setting of the Hall at St Botolph without Bishopsgate. Our regular FREE concerts take place on Thursday lunchtime at 1pm (c45 mins). We design our concerts around a central theme, often with a cast of several singers performing in each concert, taking you on a week-by-week journey.
This Autumn, we stroll through nature with our 'Songs of the Earth' series, experiencing songs inspired by animals, birds, fish and plants. 2013 marks the bicentenary of the birth of great operatic composers Richard Wagner and Giuseppe Verdi, and we explore some of their beautiful songs, for which they are less famous. Also celebrating an important anniversary this ear is Benjamin Britten. We mark his 100th birthday with a concert on the eve of his actual birthday.
On 5 December we will present a 'Christmas Schubertiade'. Come and enjoy some of Franz Schubert's songs interspersed with new songs by talented young composer Louis Mander - all with a Yuletide flavour!
