Cappella Romana, "From Constantinople to California"
With a sound “like jeweled light flooding the space” (Los Angeles Times), Cappella Romana is a Northwest-based vocal ensemble that combines deep musicality and innovative scholarship in its exploration of the musical traditions of the Christian East and West, from the medieval to the contemporary. In a treat for Stanford audiences, the group offers two very distinct programs and experiences in two venues. At Bing Concert Hall, in collaboration with faculty in Art & Art History and the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA), Cappella Romana performs Byzantine Chant and contemporary works amid acoustics electronically enhanced to simulate the lush resonances of the ancient Hagia Sophia cathedral in Istanbul, Turkey. Then, amid the untreated acoustics of Memorial Church, the ensemble features music composed for 8th and 9th-century celebrations of Holy Week in Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
Generously supported by Christine and Reece Duca. Additional support by Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA)
