Music and Nature: Rivers, Seas and Storms

Thu 16th Jul : 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until Thu 23rd Jul, 2020


A delight, an unexpected lockdown treat. Each session was varied and fascinating; Steve is clearly a talented and very knowledgeable musician and also a skilled and friendly communicatorAnnie

Steve Robinson a member of our Buddhist community and also a freelance music lecturer with his own business Verdun Allen Music Foundation, offering short courses on the lives and works of famous composers and periods of musical history.

As a fundraiser for Manchester Buddhist Centre, Steve has recently offered two series of online sessions, exploring the connection between music and the natural world. These went so well that Steve has kindly offered to run the last series again. These three sessions examine how music can imitate the sounds of water, and paint vivid orchestral pictures of storms. There will be both music and discussion, on three consecutive Thursday afternoons: 9th, 16th and 23rd July, on Zoom.

How to join the sessions

There’s no need to have been to the first series, nor to attend all three sessions, although they do form a complete series. They are offered freely to all – with a suggested donation of £10 per session: £30 for the whole series, to go to Manchester Buddhist Centre. Please donate here

To join this course, or for any further details, please email Steve Robinson at stevenrobinson1970@msn.com. Places are limited so please book in good time.

Supporting the Centre

We want to offer as much as we can freely online for as long as can. These are very difficult times for us though, and being closed means we have lost much of our income: we need your help! So if you value our Centre and community, please think about making a regular or one-off donation here.
