The Arvo Pärt Project (AAP) at St. Vladimir’s Seminary and Sacred Music in a Sacred Space will present an All-Arvo Pärt Program performed by the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir on Wednesday, February 1, at 7 p.m. at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola, NYC. The concert will be conducted by Kaspars Putninš, artistic director and chief conductor of the choir, with K. Scott Warren, artistic director at St. Ignatius, as organist.
As a leading proponent of Arvo Pärt’s music in the world, the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir has won two Grammy awards for recordings of Pärt’s compositions. Their February concert program will include several of Pärt’s works both for a cappella choir, and choir and organ, among them: "Solfeggio,” "The Beatitudes," "Summa," "Magnificat," "Dopo la vittoria," "The Woman with the Alabaster Box," "Nunc dimittis" and "Salve Regina."
