The address is given by Revd Canon Andrew Zihni, Canon Precentor of Southwark Cathedral who grew up in Hong Kong, was ordained in Oxford and was previously at St George’s Windsor. He is a keen musician and singer and has a particular interest in the interface between theology and music.
The service is preceded by a short performance by Grace Wu, Barnes Young Musician of the Year 2022, who was selected at the beginning of the festival.
