  • West Side Presbyterian Church 6 S Munroe St Ridgewood, NJ 07450 USA (map)

 

Haydn’s timeless masterpiece of spiritual music was conceived as a multimedia event combining special lighting, spoken words, and music. On Saturday, February 17 at at 8 PM the highly acclaimed Chiara String Quartet will recreate the candlelit ambience of the 1787 premiere in Cádiz’s Oratorio de la Santa Cueva.

At 7:00 PM, Artistic Director Michael Parloff will introduce the work and its history in a half-hour multimedia preview.
