Public Research Seminar Series
Tickets available on the door
Like all daughters of landed families in the eighteenth century, Charlotte Bridgeman eldest daughter of the first Baron Bradford of Weston Park, was taught music – one of the essential skills of eligible young ladies.
She sang and played the harpsichord, made music with her family and collected sheet music of the day, which survives in the Weston Park Archives. Martin Perkins (harpsichord) is joined by renowned interpreter of early vocal music Emily Van Evera in a lecture-recital exploring Charlotte’s music collections, dating from her childhood to her married years, to give an intimate portrait of music-making in a country house.
