Duffin Directs Music Choral Evensong


Johns.ChapelCWRU Department of Music Professor Ross Duffin,The Fynette H. Kulas Professor of Music, long known as an authority on historical tuning systems, has been spending his 2013-14 sabbatical in Cambridge, UK. Near the end of his time in the UK he was honored by requests to coach two of the top choirs in the world, King’s College and St. John’s College, and was thrilled to work with their choral scholars (June 10, 2014). St. John’s music director, Andrew Nethsingha, then invited Dr. Duffin to direct the music for Choral Evensong the following night, and afterwards tweeted that the service was “inspiring, revelatory, and extremely thought provoking.”  Dr Duffin says he plans to return to planet earth in time for the fall semester at CWRU.
