Dame Ethel Smyth: Composer, Suffragette, Surrey resident

As part of Suffrage/100 this concert celebrates the life of Dame Ethel Smyth (1858-1944). As well as being a recognised, pioneering female composer, as a result of her friendship with the Pankhursts she devoted her energies to the movement for two years, suspending most of her musical activities, and composed the battle song The March of the Women. Curated by Dr Mary Dullea, this concert will facilitate rare performances of chamber music and song by student performers from the Department of Music to mark this remarkable figure who is in fact buried locally in Woking.
