King's Officium flyer

Saxophone virtuoso Jan Garbarek and the glorious Hilliard Ensemble are giving the very last concert of their sublime collaboration Officium.

The 20 year relationship between Garbarek and The Hilliard Ensemble culminates in The Hilliard Ensemble’s 40th and final year with a return to King’s College Chapel, the very location in which this ground breaking collaboration gave their first English concert.

The Chapel, with its stunning architecture and resonant acoustic is the perfect venue for the farewell performance of this haunting and beautiful music.

Tickets: sold out, though return tickets may be available from The Shop at King's (01223 769340).

Note: Jan Gabarek and the Hilliard Ensemble are also playing a concert at Ely Cathedral on 15 November.
