A Sea Change | Music of the Baltic Nations - with award-winning conductor Paul Hillier


A Sea Change | Music of the Baltic Nations - with award-winning conductor Paul Hillier

On February 21st, world-renowned conductor Paul Hillier makes his Houston debut leading the Houston Chamber Choir in passionate music from the Baltic Sea. In the late 1980s, the world watched in admiration as three little Baltic countries overthrew their oppressive Soviet regimes. Throughout their struggle for freedom the Baltic peoples gathered by the thousands to draw strength from choral music in what became known as "The Singing Revolution." We pay tribute to their courage and resolve in a concert of music by Arvo Pärt and his fellow composers from Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.
