Event details

Music at the University of Southampton announces a new concert series in collaboration with Chawton House Library.

Southampton's Head of Keyboard, Professor David Owen Norris, inaugurates a new concert series on 10 December by celebrating the arrival of a newly restored early 19th-century Stodart grand piano at Chawton House. Norris is a well-known concert artist specialising in repertory for early pianos, and a broadcaster whose entertaining and informative programmes for BBC Radio 3 and 4 have a nationwide following. To launch the new Chawton House Library series, Norris and advanced keyboard students from Southampton will introduce the Stodart piano and its music, including early 19th century hits composed and arranged for performance in the parlours of estates like Chawton House.

The evening starts at 18:30 with drinks at canapés in the Old Kitchen of Chawton House Library with the recital beginning at 19:00. 

Tickets are: £15 for Students and £12.50 for Friends.  Please purchase via the website or by ringing the library direct. Tel: 01420 541010.
