It may have taken three days to receive eternal salvation, but the wait has been a lot longer for Door County audiences to enjoy “The Seven Words of Christ.”
The Pro Arte Quartet, featuring David Perry and Suzanne Beia (violins), Sally Chisholm (viola), and Parry Karp (cello) will perform "The Seven Last Words of Our Savior on the Cross" at Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church in Ellison Bay on March 31st at 7 p.m. Composed by Franz Joseph Haydn, the orchestral piece was commissioned for a Good Friday service in the 1780s. Midsummer’s Music Executive Director Allyson Fleck estimates it has not been performed locally since the early 2010s and she hopes the many people that missed it return.
