Gateway Chamber Orchestra Presents

La Pasión: A Culturally Diverse Musical Performance of the Last Days of Christ

Following their sensational debut performances of Argentinian composer Osvaldo Golijov’s work, La Pasión según San Marcos [St. Mark Passion] to pandemic limited audiences, (covered by MCR here) the GCO will again present an all-star cast including the composer’s original creative partners, Mikael Ringquist and Reynaldo Gonzalez-Fernandez. Mr. Gonzalez-Fernandez premiered the title role and is the only person to have performed it, having done so more than 70 times around the globe. Golijov’s vibrant, immediate, pan-Latin American approach brings a multi-cultural response to Bach’s historically significant St. Matthew Passion. This exciting concert weaves salsa, flamenco, Gregorian chant, Capoeira, African drumming, and numerous folk traditions into an entirely new vision of the last days of Christ. The performance of this piece is a rarity anywhere, and not to be missed! Here is a preview video:
