Arvo Pärt’s “Kanon Pokajanen” in the Temple of Dendur in the Metropolitan Museum, New York City, presented by Williamson Voices – Saturday, November 19, 2016 at 7 pm
Kanon Pokajanen (Canon of Repentance) is one of Arvo Pärt’s unqualified masterpieces—a work of immense cumulative force born of sacred music and chant.
The Estonian composer received a standing ovation when it was first performed at The Met in 2014, singers sitting in a circle, “rendering the work with a power and purity of tone that fully revealed its mystical, serene qualities” (New York Times).
Don’t miss the opportunity to experience Pärt’s trademark tintinnabulation in person as the commanding Westminster Williamson Voices of Westminster Choir College perform this a cappella work in the contemplative setting of The Temple of Dendur.
Tickets to this event ($75) include Museum admission during open hours.
