Houston Chamber Choir presents "Baltic Sea Change" with guest conductor Paul Hillier
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."
The concert pays tribute to their courage and resolve in a concert of music by Arvo Pärt and his fellow composers from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
