Concert: PCCH Gallery Choir and Fairmount Strings
Daniel Spratlan, Conductor
Arvo Pärt – Stabat Mater, Lewis Spratlan – Addiction (World Premiere)
4:00 pm, the Sanctuary of the church
Pulitzer Prize winning composer Lewis Spratlan’s new commissioned work for
choir and orchestra, Addiction, sets to music the poetry of those most affected by
the opioid epidemic: addicts and their family members. Pärt’s Stabat Mater depicts
Christ’s mother weeping for him at the cross, just as countless parents weep for their
children today. Please join us in Widener Hall for a reception and gallery viewing of
“Kensington Blues” following the concert.
