About this event

As part of Stroud Green Festival

A concert of vocal music illuminating the hidden lives of exceptional women whose worlds revolved around the Queen of the Sciences, Astronomer & Mathematician Mary Somerville (1780-1872).

In 1834 a book called “On the Connexion of the Physical Sciences” exploded onto the cultural stage of Western Europe. For the first time, the author, Mary Somerville, described the interdependence of astronomy, physics, chemistry, geology and maths, and explained the latest scientific thinking of the day in language directed to her “country-women”.

Somerville’s curiosity and disciplined work reflect her childhood pursuits – looking into every nook and cranny of the landscape around her Fife home, collecting fossils & shells, learning Euclid by heart, painting and practising the piano for hours.

Kind, gentle and unassuming, Somerville was not a lone woman adrift in a sea of male expertise. Like ripples spreading out from the centre, she influenced ever-widening circles of talented yet unsung women including scientists, novelists, artists, philosophers and musicians.

The concert will take place in Holy Trinity Gardens if the weather allows, otherwise in the hall.
