1:00 PM Pre-concert Talk
Chapter House adjacent to the Church

2:00 PM Concert

St. John’s Abbey and University Church
Collegeville, MN

The St. Cloud Symphony Orchestra, Great River Chorale, and the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University Chamber Choir will present Mozart’s 233-year-old Requiem and three additional compositions: a hymn by Hildegard von Bingen ‘O Virtus Sapientiae’ (‘O Strength of Wisdom’), the first movement of Steve Reich’s WTC 9/11, and lastly, Charles Ives’ The Unanswered Question. The three works will be embedded within the  mass for the dead to complement the Requiem’s themes of life and death and to help create a space for modern-day reflection. 

There will be a reception in the Great Hall (#2 on the map below) following the concert.

The Abbey Church is  #6 on the map below. Handicap accessible parking is available in lots adjacent to the church.
