The Silence of Being: Arvo Pärt's "Te Deum"
Explore the purity of sound and the luxury of silence with music that stems from and returns to stillness.
Arvo Pärt has spent a lifetime exploring the purity of sound. In Te Deum, he uses chant, string orchestra, prepared harp, and chorus to build a sonic world that amplifies silence.
This free event features Meditating with Music – an optional pre-concert introduction to meditation workshop with Patty Dodd, Natural Meditation Group leader.
