Duke Initiatives in Theology and the Arts (DITA) at Duke Divinity School will host the U.S. premiere of Scottish composer James MacMillan’s St. Luke Passion in Duke Chapel. The newly commissioned piece offers a fresh, dramatic, and intensely moving setting of the Apostle Luke’s biblical account of Christ’s suffering and death.
The piece is scored for orchestra, organ, soloists, and two choirs. It will be performed on Palm Sunday by the Duke Chapel Choir, Durham Children's Choir, and Orchestra Pro Cantores, and conducted by Rodney Wynkoop, director of Duke University choral music.
Tickets are $35 for preferred seating, $20 for general admission, $18 for Duke faculty and staff, and $5 for students. They can be purchased through the Duke University Box Office.
The concert is the culmination of “Sounding the Passion: Encounters in Poetry, Theology, and Music,” a series of April 9-13 events sponsored by the Divinity School, Duke Chapel, and the Duke University Music Department, in collaboration with the Duke Initiatives in Theology and the Arts.
