Dvorak In The Woods, Thursday 31 May

15 May 2018

The Billhook Nook outdoor theatre space, opposite the new KBS building on Parkwood Road, will play host to a performance of Dvořák's ‘American’ quartet, as the ensemble heads out into the summer sunshine (or so we hope, anyway…) on Thursday 31 May at 13.10.

Comprising third-year Law student and Music Scholar, Lydia Cheng, second-year Asian Studies & Classical and Archaeological Studies student, Alice Nixon, second-year Music Scholar reading Mathematics, Molly Richetta on viola, and final-year Law student, cellist Alex Deacon-Viney, the ensemble plans to take Dvořák's popular work out of the concert-hall and into somewhere you wouldn't expect to hear it.

Assuming the weather is as good (or even better) than it is at the moment, people are encouraged to bring a picnic and enjoy some fine weather and even finer music on Thursday 31 May at 13.10. During what is always a busy term, with students (and staff) working under the pressure of examinations, the chance to hear music in an informal and relaxed environment will hopefully offer a welcome respite from the term's busy commitments.

The event is free to attend: more details online. The Billhook Nook space is part of the Creative Campus initiative.

Please note that the event is entirely weather-dependent! Please keep an eye on Twitter @unikent_music for updates on the day in the event of uncertain weather conditions.
