Seminary's Arvo Pärt Project Organizes NYC Event

Purchase Arvo Pärt: Out of Silence

On April 16, the "Live Ideas" festival sponsored every year by New York Live Arts will feature a day of events focused on Arvo Pärt. Renowned composer and musician Laurie Anderson, who is curating the festival, enlisted St. Vladimir's Arvo Pärt Project to plan and organize three events called "Arvo Pärt: Journeys in Silence."

At noon there will be a panel discussion moderated by Dr. Peter Bouteneff, associate professor of Systematic Theology. The panel will feature Laurie Anderson, celebrated choral conductor and educator James Jordan of Westminster Choir College, and musicologist William Robin. At 4:00 p.m. a documentary film about Arvo Pärt, "24 Preludes for a Fugue," will be screened, followed by a Question and Answer session with Prof. Bouteneff. Finally, at 7:00 p.m., there will be a rare performance of Pärt's chamber works.

Bouteneff's new SVS Press book Arvo Pärt: Out of Silence, will make its public debut at this festival, with signings by the author after the mid-day and evening events.

The Arvo Pärt Project at St. Vladimir's Seminary is part of the Seminary's plans for a new Institute of Sacred Arts, as called for by the Board of Trustees in the the 2020 Strategic Plan.

Panel discussion at noon
Documentary film at 4 p.m.
A selection of Chamber Works at 7:30 p.m.
