Songs for Joséphine
Saturday 22 June 2019, 7pm,
The Bowes Museum, Barnard Castle
Organised by the The Friends of the Bowes Museum,
Saturday 6 July 2019, 7.30pm
Summer concert and reception: St Brandon’s Church, Brancepeth
Our summer programme is inspired by items in the art collection of Joséphine Bowes, and for the first of the two concerts, we’ll be singing with the paintings around us in the museum she and her husband built for them, as guests of the Friends of The Bowes Museum.
The Bowes Museum programme includes music from 17th century Italy, a rarity by Fauré, La Naissance de Vénus and, of course Orlando Gibbons’s The Silver Swan. We perform a modified version of the programme at Brancepeth: this concert will be followed by our summer reception to which all are invited.
