This Spring 2019, the Center for the Arts & Religion will host 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 will host the exhibition Sacred Sounds, featuring 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 seeks to highlight 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 you view the historic records on display, listen to recordings taken from the vinyls, at our newly installed listening station.
Join us on Thursday, February 7 in the Doug Adams Gallery from 5-7pm for an opening reception and mini concert with the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble.
A full list of events can be found on the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble website - check back often, as more events are still in the works!
