The Way of the Cross: A Passion Pilgrimage Through Song – The Making of The Passion
Tuesday, March 1, 2022 12:30 pm EST
On Tuesday, March 1, 2022 ThinkND launched a new series, The Way of the Cross: A Passion Pilgrimage Through Song. Led by Grammy® Award winner and Director of the Notre Dame Folk Choir J.J. Wright, this series will introduce The Passion, a new artistic production combining Scripture with original poetry and set to original music.
Through Christ’s Passion, we learn to encounter suffering and incarnate love, to behold one another in our “not-enoughness.” As we enter the upcoming Lenten and Easter seasons, we invite you to journey with the Folk Choir and some of our closest collaborators through the development, rehearsal, and performance process of The Passion. Along the way, we will explore the Passion and Resurrection in light of the most pressing issues on the minds of our students, including the clergy sexual abuse crisis, the role of women in the Church, and climate change. In May, the choir will make a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, where they’ll walk in Jesus’s steps through the Passion and record this new work at the Jerusalem Music Center.
