We are holding our annual partnership event with St James’s Piccadilly on 25 September from 1.45–3.30pm to celebrate the launch of Rev Dr June Boyce-Tillman’s new book Experiencing Music – Restoring the Spiritual: Music as Wellbeing.
The launch of Experiencing Music will explore the variety of ways that music can put us in touch with the spiritual. It is dedicated to making the musical experience accessible and understandable to people with and without musical expertise. It will include a variety of activities and discussion that will help participants to understand the place of music in their own lives and that of the wider cosmos. This will enable those present to understand the relationship between music and spirituality and find ways to cross musical borders with understanding and respect. Rev Lucy Winkett, Rector of St James’s, will chair the session.
Rowan Williams has said: “This book is an astonishing achievement ….. Learning to sing is ….. connecting with the world we inhabit in a fresh and life-giving way. A deeply enriching study.”
June Boyce–Tillman is Professor of Applied Music and Artistic Convenor for the Centre for the Arts as Wellbeing at the University of Winchester, and Extraordinary Professor at North-West University, South Africa.
Venue: St James’s Piccadilly, 197 Picadilly, London W1J 9LL
