May 22: Ascension and Stanford Choral Music

There are three distinct segments to this program. First is a section of music relevant to arising in general, or Ascension Day (May 25 this year) in particular. There is also a section that airs a concert tape from the St. Mark's Concert Series in Palo Alto, which was freshly recorded on May 21. The final hour of this program features Stephen Sano, coordinator of choral music programs in the Stanford University Music Department.
