The Minnesota Orchestra has graciously provided tickets for Ascension parishioners to attend performances of La Pasión según San Marcos, The Passion According to St. Mark. Energized by the spirit of Afro-Cuban music, bossa nova, tango, rumba and flamenco, composer Osvaldo Golijov brings the rich tradition of Latin American music to his interpretation of the final days in the life of Jesus Christ on Earth as described in the Bible’s Gospel of Mark.
The performance features the choral group Border CrosSing, which has performed at Ascension Church, and the Minnesota Chorale.
Tickets are available for two performances at Orchestra Hall:
8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2.
8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3
