A delicate veil of voices floats on the air at the Kennedy Center, filling the packed concert hall with the captivating music of Estonian composer Arvo Pärt.
According to Stephen Gorbos, a professor of music composition at Catholic University of America, this enthusiasm is demonstrative of the composer's broad appeal.
