Musical Kensington – Virtual Tour
Variations On A Theme of A Musical Neighbourhood
From Hubert Parry to Freddie Mercury, all music is here in Kensington.
Two great institutions will drive our narrative…
The Royal College of Music, where Parry was Head of History – we’ll look at its foundation and the role it plays in the cultural life of the country.
And of course, the Royal Albert Hall – Eric Clapton’s “second home” and the venue for the famous Proms season.
With walk-on parts from Pink Floyd’s Syd Barrett, Jimi Hendrix and Flanders & Swann, it’s quite a bill! I doubt there’s a Spotify algorithm to unify the artists we’ll cover – but cover them we most certainly will. All music is here in Kensington!
