Dylan Thomas: His Words in Music
National Waterfront Museum
An illustrated lecture by conductor Edward-Rhys Harry. Is it possible that Wales’ famous poet son extended his literary influence beyond the worlds of narrative, poetry and prose?
Join us for a special evening punctuated by live and recorded performances of the words of Dylan Thomas in ways you will not have heard before.
The evening will open with a performance by Dunvant Male Voice Choir followed by the Welsh premiere of The Force That Through The Green Fuse Drives The Flower – a choral setting of Thomas’ poem written in his late teens and commissioned in this centenary year by the family of Dylan Thomas himself.
- Dunvant Male Voice Choir
- London Welsh Camerata
- Jenny Trew – piano
- Steffan Morris – cello
- Edward-Rhys Harry – speaker and conductor
In association with the Swansea Festival of Music and the Arts.
