As part of King's College Chapel's 500th anniversary celebrations, we are delighted to announce a very special concert of contemporary music, to be held in the Chapel on 22 April.

The programme begins with Judith Weir's fantastic cycle Songs from the Exotic, performed by Helen Daniels and Benedict Kearns. The concluding item is Unsuk Chin Akrostichon-Wortspiel, soloist Laura Monaghan, in which scenes from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Michael Ende's Die unendliche Geschichte are interwoven with luminous instrumental textures, creating a unique experience for the listener.

Between these two pieces are ensemble, choral, electroacoustic and solo piano works by Cambridge composers Christopher Norman, Max Liefkes, Rhiannon Randle and Alex Tay, with mezzo-soprano Helen Charlston. Conducting the programme are Benedict Collins Rice and Eric Tuan.

The concert will begin at 9pm and run for about 1h 45m, with an interval.

Entrance fee: £2 students, £5 adults. Tickets available on the door, or to reserve them please email .
