Harlem’s The Cathedral of St. John the Divine and Experiential Orchestra, in partnership with LPR, present Arvo Pärt’s Passio: A Concert for Peace and Healing.
Grammy-winning Experiential Orchestra and collaborators Artefact Ensemble bring their acclaimed interpretation of the music of Arvo Pärt to New York for the first time since their two sold-out concerts of the music of Arvo Pärt at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2021.
Soloists include bass-baritone Enrico Lagasca as Jesus and tenor Haitham Haidar as Pilate. Experiential Orchestra Music Director James Blachly conducts.
At 7 pm, a choral prelude of Orthodox Chant settings by Artefact Ensemble Artistic Director Benedict Sheehan invites the audience to experience an encounter with the tradition that forms the root of Arvo Pärt’s religious and musical world.
“… an offering for peace and healing in the world.”
This concert will be performed as an offering for peace and healing in the world.
Over one hundred years ago, the trustees of the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine conceived its mission to be a house of prayer for all people, an instrument of church unity, and a center of intellectual light and leading in the spirit of Jesus Christ.
Today, as the mother church of the Episcopal Diocese of New York and the seat of its bishop, the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine serves the many diverse people of our diocese, city, nation and world through the worship of God; pastoral, educational and community outreach activities; cultural and civic events; international ecumenical initiatives; and the preservation of the great architectural and historic site that is its legacy.
A choral prelude will be presented at 7 PM by Artefact Ensemble. Tickets are $20 – $75 and are available at stjohndivine.org or in person at the Cathedral’s HERE .
