JAMES MACMILLAN: Seven Last Words from the Cross


Music Hall

Concert Duration

1 hour and 50 minutes

What's Interesting

  • Ideal for: Thinkers, introspective listeners, sacred music aficionados—attend if you like new voices in music, spirituality and faith, intimacy and humanity and deeply emotional music. Perhaps adding something about “innovative choral and orchestral sound colors” or similar – the Poulenc is totally ear candy.
  • May Festival Creative Partner Sir James MacMillan leads a performance of his profound and transcendent Seven Last Words from the Cross. He’s joins long and distinguished roster of conductor/composers at the May Festival, including Edward Elgar.

Join composer, conductor and 2019 creative partner James MacMillan and May Festival Associate Director of Choruses and Director of the Youth Chorus Matthew Swanson in Springer Auditorium one hour before the concert to get closer to the music with a pre-concert talk.
