Behind-the-Scenes: William Blake Song Suites at the Block [Video]

Visitors to the Block Museum of Art on February 7, 2018 enjoyed William Blake’s art through music when students from the Bienen School of Music performed two song cycles inspired by Blake: Benjamin Britten’s 1965 Songs and Proverbs of William Blake and Ralph Vaughan Williams’s 1957 Ten Blake Songs.

The performances took place in the museum’s gallery surrounded by Blake’s original works. This program also included an exhibition lecture by Jacob Leveton and John Murphy, Art History professors and contributors to the “William Blake and the Age of Aquarius” exhibition catalog.  Our cameras captured behind the scenes footage of the students practicing throughout the Block Museum.
