Join Kelly Sundin and Estonian choral singers for an evening of music and cultural identity
The art of communal singing is an integral part of the Estonian cultural identity. Singing has served to inspire and unify the people for centuries. Through archival manuscripts of choral music housed within the Immigration History Research Center, one can begin to get a glimpse into the history and culture of the Estonian people. Five performance editions of Estonian choral music will be shared during this performance, along with cultural and historical context to provide a lens for the listener to better understand a nation and people. Communal singing has and continues to be a powerful vehicle for the Estonian people to share their unique national identity. The performance will share in that ongoing story though performance of the archival manuscripts. Estonians celebrate themselves and their nation through song. The IHRC archives provide a living history and allow us to join in a cultural celebration of the song traditions of the Estonian people.
This is the final portion of the Immigration History Research Center's Estonian Archive and Research Symposium, held May 15th from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For more information, please see the event listing here.
