The World Premiere of "Green Bushes" for Brass Band, composed by Professor Martyn Harry, will take place at Girton College Cambridge, on Saturday 24 June, at 7.30pm. City of Cambridge Brass Band will be conducted by the composer. Professor Harry, who is the John Bennett Lecturer in Music at St Hilda's College, describes his experience of working on this project:
If you come down to College that day you’re sure of a big surprise... Welcome to this year’s Garden Party, the Teddy Bears’ Picnic. With games and competitions for all ages there shall be lots of marvellous things to eat and wonderful games to play: decorate your gingerbread bear, Best Dressed Bear Parade, coconut shy, face painting, croquet, story-telling and more.
Come and talk to our Senior Tutor, meet our current students, and see the College first hand. There is no need to book a place to attend one of our College Open Days. You can look around before you come with our interactive map or find out more about the College by watching our 'Introduction to St Hilda's' video.
A conference will take place on 8 July at Wolfson to examine how people write about the lives of dancers and choreographers, and how dance as a silent form represents life stories. The day combines practical demonstration, film, biographers, practitioners, discussion and speakers, including: Dame Monica Mason, former Director of The Royal Ballet; Jennifer Homans, NYU; Michael Burden and Julia Buhrle; Jane Pritchard, curator of dance for the Victoria and Albert Museum; Judith Mackrell, dance critic; Michael Huxley, Ramsay Burt, and Helene Neveu Kringelbach.
