What came before the beginning? What of the human condition?

Voces boreales will attempt to answer these fundamental questions with a reflection on the following themes: the universe before the Big Bang, the Creation, what it is to be human, the birth of Christianity, the need for moral virtues in modern society, the question of our own mortality. An ambitious undertaking!

Please join us on this musical and philosophical journey through time, from its beginning to our end….
