New Arvo Pärt Work


SDG joins in sponsoring this year’s Vale of Glamorgan Festival in Wales, in celebration of Arvo Pärt’s 75th birthday. The Vale of Glamorgan Festival has “frequently programmed music that focuses on the spiritual in what seems to be an increasingly secular society,” says John Metcalf, Artistic Director of the Festival. It is especially fitting, then, that this year’s Festival will feature the work of Estonian composer Pärt—and that SDG is partnering to sponsor the Festival. We are particularly excited about the September 9th premiere of Pärt’s In Spe (“In Hope”), based on Psalm 137.

 Soli Deo Gloria is pleased to partner with Ideale Audience and Medici Arts to bring Franz Joseph Haydn’s masterpiece The Creation, considered by many to be his greatest work, to an audience of millions through state-of-the-art media technology. On Friday, June 25, 2010, Conductor John Nelson will lead the Netherlands Radio Chamber Philharmonic and the Netherlands Radio Choir in a live video webcast of this beloved Haydn oratorio from Grote Kerk, Naarden—one of the oldest and most famous churches in the Netherlands.


A Celebration of Arvo Pärt

Arvo Part

Arvo Pärt

This September marks the 75th birthday of Arvo Pärt, and to honor this esteemed Estonian composer, the Vale of Glamorgan Festival in Wales is offering a major celebration of his work. SDG has been invited to co-sponsor the 2010 Festival in what will be the most extensive celebration in Great Britain, programming no fewer than 14 of his compositions during the space of a week. A highlight of the Festival—with an appearance by the composer himself—will be the September 9, 2010, premiere of In Spe (“In Hope”), to be performed by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Tõnu Kaljuste conducting, at the BBC Hoddinott Hall, Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff Bay.


Announcing the Chicago Bach Project

It has been a long-held dream at Soli Deo Gloria to launch a series of concerts in Chicago that would symbolize the mission we carry out in the world at large. Now the dream is becoming a reality. Beginning in 2011, we are proud to launch the Chicago Bach Project, opening with the Bach’s “Great Passion,” the St. Matthew.

"The launch of this project is a much-anticipated milestone in SDG’s 17-year journey from birth to maturity. I have every reason to believe that the energy we’ve poured into this idea over the years will be well rewarded. We have great people in place at every level of development on this project. It promises to be exceptional."—Chandler Branch, CEO
