For Good or For Ill: How Has Religion Shaped Society?
How can we measure the many contributions religious communities make to culture?
From music and art, to science and social cohesion, we debate what contributions religion has made to society and how those weigh up against issues such as discrimination and violence committed in the name of a God.
We welcome back the Colin Currie Group who perform Steve Reich’s Tehillim, which incorporates both driving rhythms and vocals inspired by the ritual chanting of the Hebrew Bible at synagogue.
Our partner orchestra for the festival, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, perform Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with its world-embracing climax, Ode to Joy.
This is the fifth part of our year-long festival, Belief and Beyond Belief, and our last before a break for the summer.
