Zadie Smith and the BBC Symphony Orchestra
April 22 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm
Zadie Smith, one of the most influential cultural figures in Britain, joins the BBC Symphony Orchestra for a concert blurring boundaries between music and words.
Music has always coursed through Smith’s works. At university she worked as a jazz singer while her 2016 novel Swing Time, long listed for the Booker Prize, explores her love of music and dance. In the latest of our collaborations with great writers, Smith joins the orchestra for this entertaining concert exploring the music, ideas and artists who have challenged, provoked and inspired her.
