“The sudden atmosphere of stillness and meditation that Pärt's music instantly communicates is one of its most appealing qualities.” Tom Service of The Guardian

The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir will perform contemporary Estonian composer Arvo Pärt’s stunning 1982 setting of the St. John Passion on March 10 and 11. The concerts will take place in the Church of the Holy Trinity, a serene oasis in the bustle of downtown Toronto, and a wonderful setting for this evocative and meditative work. Artistic Director Noel Edison will place the choir, instrumental chamber ensemble, and soloists around the space to immerse the audience in the hypnotic flow of music and silence the builds over the 70-minute work.

In this passion cantata, sung in Latin, the solo baritone (Jeremy Colvin) sings the role of Jesus, solo tenor (Michael Colvin) sings the role of Pilate, and the solo vocal octet sing the role of the Evangelist. The chamber ensemble includes violin, oboe, cello, bassoon and organ.

This is a rare opportunity to hear this acclaimed work in performance. The TMC last performed the Passio in 2007.

There will be two performances: Tuesday, March 10, 2015 and Wednesday, March 11, 2015 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $35 and $45 ($35 and $42 for seniors) with $20 VoxTix available for patrons 30 and under. Tickets are available from the TMC Box Office online at www.tmchoir.org/boxoffice or by phone at 416-598-0422, ext 221.
