SMND Conducting Recital - Zen Kuriyama


Location: St Monica Catholic Church, 222 W Mishawaka Ave, Mishawaka, IN 46545

Join Zen Kuriyama and the musicians of Sacred Music at Notre Dame for this Palm Sunday recital. Featuring Arvo Pärt's Stabat Mater, this recital is intended as a devotional service--wedding together text, prayer, and music--to prepare our minds and hearts for Holy Week. Also featured will be two works by Gerald Finzi: Prelude for String Orchestra in F minor, op. 25 and Farewell to Arms, op. 9, featuring tenor Nolan Carter. The Georgian Marian chant 'Shen Khar Venakhi'--written in homage to the Blessed Mother and which was the only chant allowed in Soviet-occupied Georgia--will center our love and appreciation for Mary, who stood at the foot of the cross.
