Watch a video of musicians from the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble talking about their residency.
In Spring 2019, CARe hosted the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble residency, involving a packed schedule of performances and other music-related events. In conjuncture with the performative aspect of the residency, the Doug Adams Gallery exhibited Sacred Sounds, which featured items loaned from the Graduate Theological Union, San Francisco Theological Seminary and Dominican School of Philosophy & Theology archives.
By displaying a wide variety of sacred music, from 15th-century sheet music from the Philippines to a contemporary Catholic Exultet Scroll, this exhibition highlighted the breadth of world religious music and to bring to life the sacrality imbued within sound itself. The exhibition also includes items loaned from the GTU’s LP record collection, cataloging ancient and contemporary sacred music traditions from around the world. As visitors viewed the historic records on display, they were able to listen to recordings taken from the vinyls, at a newly-installed listening station.
This exhibition opened on Thursday, February 7, 2019 with an opening reception and mini concert by the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble.
