In Tune with the RA

Every month, we welcome musicians from the Royal College of Music to perform original compositions inspired by the RA Collection in the galleries, as part of our Friday night late openings.

For these performances, composers from the Royal College of Music have selected a work from the RA Collection as their inspiration, which have included works by Royal Academicians and artists including Bob and Roberta Smith RA, Angelica Kauffman, John Constable and Michelangelo. This month’s performances have been composed by Zacharias Wolfe and Carla Ginjaume.

The works performed during this event were premiered in The Benjamin West Lecture Theatre in December 2018 in celebration of the RA’s 250th Anniversary.
