Pärt Passio with Aurora Orchestra

Buy Tickets

Completed in 1982, this passion setting is one of Pärt’s most popular works and employs his truly original tintinnabuli style. Set by candlelight, Tenebrae and the players from the Aurora Orchestra will create an immersive audience experience in what promises to be an unmissable event in this year’s Holy Week Festival.

“You couldn’t have asked for a better performance: plush choral sound, heartfelt solos… rich contributions from the Aurora Orchestra and all immaculately sculpted by Short.”  The Times

This concert is part of our Holy Week Festival, curated in partnership with St John’s Smith Square.
