Stanford University Chorale pays a return visit to St John's

Posted on: 20 June 2016

Stanford University Chorale visited St John's College in June for a well-received weekend's residency, including two Evensongs, on Friday and Saturday 17 & 18 June, and a concert in Chapel on Sunday 19.  

Hailing from Palo Alto, California, the Chorale is an acclaimed mixed voice ensemble, whose organist is former St John's Organ Scholar Robert Huw Morgan.  As well as a homecoming visit for him, the residency was also a chance for the singers to renew acquaintances with the College Choir after the two groups' joint concert in California earlier this year.
