British-born composer David Blake was the joint founder of the Department of Music at the University of York in 1964. He was a Lecturer in Music in the Department until 1976 when he became Professor. He has composed a wide range of music including opera, orchestral works and chamber music. His 5th String Quartet was commissioned in 2010 to celebrate the Swaledale Festival's 30th Anniversary.
Throughout the festival, I will be having a one woman show of paintings and prints at the Warlands Gallery, Leyburn (same building as Tourist Information).
SATURDAY 25th MAY - SUNDAY 9th June 2013
Please contact me if would like to come to the private view on the evening of Friday 24th May.
