Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir

A celebration of Estonia’s nationhood features favourites by Arvo Pärt – and a world premiere.

“Few choruses have such an intimate connections with their conductor and with the music they perform.” —The Washington Post

Cherished as a national treasure in its own country, the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir — famed for showcasing the work of such renowned compatriots as Arvo Pärt—has also been greeted in North America with the rapture accorded to rock stars.

As the 100th year of Estonia’s independence draws near, conductor Kaspars Putniņš (who last joined Soundstreams for the Canadian Choral Celebration) leads this choral concert featuring works by Pärt and selections from Rachmaninov’s Vespers.

The program also features world premieres by Canadian Omar Daniel (last commissioned by Soundstreams for Celebrate with Soundstreams), and Toronto-born Riho Esko Maimets (last commissioned by Soundstreams for The Music of Arvo Part). Maimets’s hauntingly beautiful, profoundly spiritual music, infused with his Estonian heritage, has won him acclaim and awards in Canada and abroad.
