Modern & Medieval: Music by Arvo Pärt & Others, performed by the UW Chamber ChoirExport this event to calendar

Sunday, November 22, 2015 — 7:30 PM EST

Pärt's rarely performed composition frames the Gospel of John from the New Testament in a meditative, almost hypnotic style. It was inspired by medieval music and the minimalism for which he is famous.  This concert is part of a celebration for the 80th birthday of Arvo Pärt, so well loved and admired by listeners worldwide.  Arguably the world’s most popular composer of contemporary classical music, his music is revered in his homeland of Estonia and around the world.
