We will reschedule this event for 29 February 2020.
Join us to celebrate the life and music of Stanley Glasser, Head of the Music Department from 1966 - 1991 and creator of the Electronic Music Studios.
Emeritus Professor Stanley Glasser sadly passed away last August. He was an important figurehead at Goldsmiths with his extraordinary leadership and innovatory ideas about music. Since last summer the idea has been taking root of creating an opportunity to meet up and share memories of Stanley, with opportunities to perform and listen to some of his music. We are delighted that Liz Glasser will be attending and sharing some of her many stories about her husband.
The day will try and cover as many as possible of Stanley's wide range of musical interests and it is intended to prepare a Workshop Performance of Stanley's highly successful cantata, 'The Chameleon and the Lizard'.
At various points during the day there will be rehearsals for the choir and orchestra, both separately and then together, in preparation for a workshop performance. 'The Chameleon and the Lizard' was first performed in 1971 by the London Bach Society and we plan to perform some of the easier sections. A small orchestra of strings, oboes, trumpets and percussion is required, and if you would like to be in it, please contact Imogen Burman.
