During May 2015 there is a chance to hear two fine student ensembles from American universities, the Yale Schola Cantorum a chamber choir supported by Yale Institute of Sacred Music with Yale University, and Juilliard415, the Juilliard School's principal period instrument ensemble. Conducted by David Hill, principal conductor of the Yale Schola Cantorum, the two ensembles are performing in concerts in Winchester Cathedral, Old Royal Naval College Chapel (London), St George's Chapel Windsor, the University Church of St Mary (Oxford), St John's Smith Square, Westminster Abbey, Trinity College Chapel (Cambridge) as well as in Saint Sulpice in Paris. 

The events run from 21 May to 31 May 2015, and are a mixture of concerts and performances of Evensong. Repertoire for the concerts includes Shout Joy! by the young American composer Daniel Kellog, and the premiere of Roderick Williams' O Brother Man, plus Haydn's Symphony no. 94, 'Surprise' and Beethoven Mass in C. Roderick Williams' work is being premiered in by the ensembles in New Haven and New York, before they give the work's European premiered in Oxford.
