A co-production with the Arvo Pärt Project at St. Vladimir’s Seminary

This all-Pärt program will include two major compositions inspired by St. Silouan of Mount Athos, as well as a new setting of the Prayer from the Kanon of Repentance that will be performed for the first time in the United States.

As part of the evening, in view of the musical tribute to St. Silouan’s legacy, the Arvo Pärt Project has invited Elder Zacharias of Essex—one of the living elders of the Orthodox Church—to take part in a pre-concert lecture on St. Silouan and repentance in the music of Arvo Pärt. Fr. Zacharias is a disciple of St. Silouan’s own disciple Elder Sophrony, and is a monk in the community founded by Elder Sophrony, the Monastery of St. John the Baptist in Essex, England. The pre-concert lecture will begin at 6:45 p.m. in Wallace Hall, below the main level of the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola.
