In Tune with the RA: performances from the Royal College of Music
Friday 22 March 2019 7 - 7.30pm
The Collection Gallery, Burlington Gardens, Royal Academy of Arts
Free, no booking required.
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 – such as Bob and Roberta Smith RA, Angelica Kauffman, John Constable and Michelangelo. This month’s performances have been composed by Yin Lu and Tom Foster.
