British Women and Song

Sarah Walker presents a concert celebrating British women in song, from the Victorian era right up to the present. Performed live at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

Today's live Lunchtime Concert is a celebration of British women in song, curated by Dr Sophie Fuller of Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.
