For the first time, Philharmonia brings PBO SESSIONS to Stanford.

This historically-informed program will captivate the ears of early music enthusiasts as much as those who crave contemporary cadence. The charismatic composer joins conductor Nic McGegan and countertenor Daniel Moody. Mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter moderates this cabaret-style experience, complete with no host bar.

A Song of Christ's Glory Premiere /Chapel Choir of Emmanuel College, Cambridge

The theme of the sermons at Evensong on Sundays in Lent Term is based around Songs of the Bible.

Singing, and in particular singing praise to God, is central to the life of faith. Unsurprisingly the Bible is full of songs that different people sing in different circumstances and for different reasons. In the Psalms we have a whole book of such songs. This sermon, A Song of Christ’s Glory, is accompanied by the world premiere of a piece that has been specially commissioned from Grace-Evangeline Mason to go with these songs.
