Director of Music at Clare College, award-winning composer and conductor, Graham Ross’s works have been performed throughout Europe and beyond. Join him for a very special Sunday afternoon as he discusses some of his favourite pieces of classical music, sharing his expertise and insight. Graham will also reflect on his 10 years at Cambridge, including his work with the international-renowned Clare College Choir. This is an opportunity not to be missed!

A recording of this session is now available to watch on YouTube.

Watch now: in June Graham brought together more than 200 of Clare College’s musical alumni and assembled a Virtual Benediction for students around the world who were unable to graduate in the usual way.
