Parry Festival: Stephen Johnson Talk

Steer for the Deep Waters Only

St Mary de Lode Church, Gloucester


Join BBC Radio 3’s Stephen Johnson for a talk focussing on the music of tonight’s Gala Concert by Parry and his pupils Vaughan Williams, Holst and Ireland. Steer for the deep waters only, words by Walt Whitman set so beautifully by Vaughan Williams in his Sea Symphony, was the advice given by Parry to his pupils at the Royal College of Music. Learn more in what is sure to be a fascinating talk by one of the BBC’s most erudite and entertaining presenters.
