Arvo Pärt’s "Kanon Pokajanen" ("Penitential Canon") premiered 25 years ago to the month, and offered to you at the height of this Lenten season with this concert, is a journey into the depth of Eastern Orthodox spirituality by vehicle of repentance. In this masterwork, Pärt weaves the fabrics of sound and silence as space and negative space. He approaches this medium through a sense of time that reflects the minimalism and timelessness of both the canon’s Church Slavonic text and of Orthodox liturgics in general. We invite you along this life-lifting journey, embodied by the artistry of Arvo Pärt, and presented by our humble ensemble.
The Osanna Chamber Ensemble is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit choir comprised of the best student and young professional singers from around the U.S. Under the leadership of conductor John Arlievsky, and with many PaTRAM singers contributing their talents to the ensemble, the choir presents Kanon Pokajanen to launch its 2023 season. Public support is most essential to making our work possible. Become a sponsor to change the lives of developing artists, Orthodox church musicians, their students and parish choir singers, and audiences around the world by bringing this art form to life.
