March 24, 2015 Redlands, California
As part of its evening to honor His Holiness the Karmapa, the University of Redlands invited Chung Shih Hoh of their music department to create a new musical arrangement of Aspiration for the World, a song composed by the 17th Karmapa as an ode to the planet. During the ceremony to confer his honorary degree, the 26-person University of Redlands Choral Singers offered an exquisite performance of the new arrangement, led by Nicholle Andrews. Accompanying them on the organ was Philip Hoch. The university offers this recording set to a slide show of the visit.
