Songs of Innocence and Experience: Performance and Gallery Tour

Date and Time: 
Wednesday, February 7, 2018 - 6:00pm

Admission is free.

This event takes place at the Block Museum of Art.
Presented in partnership with the Bienen School of Music

Join us as we bring the work of William Blake to life through music. Bienen School of Music students perform two pieces inspired by Blake: Benjamin Britten’s 1965 Songs and Proverbs of William Blake and Ralph Vaughan Williams’s 1957 Ten Blake Songs. These special in-gallery performances bookend an exhibition tour by Art History PhD candidates Jacob Leveton and John Murphy on Blake’s exploration of utopic and dystopic worlds.
