Experience William Blake’s art through music when students from the Bienen School of Music perform 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. A portion of this special performance will take place in the museum's Leffman gallery. This program will also include an exhibition tour by Jacob Leveton and John Murphy, Ph. D candidates, Art History, Northwestern University, and contributors to the "William Blake and the Age of Aquarius" exhibition catalog.
