100 Singers Honor the 100th Anniversary of Estonian Independence

Sunday, 1 April 2018, 7.00pm

Presented by the Foundation of Estonian Arts and Letter, Esto-Atlantis Choral Concert is part of an international event acknowledging the Republic of Estonia’s centenary. 100+ singers from around the world gather to perform, celebrate, and honor the rich heritage of Estonian choral music on Lincoln Center’s world renowned stage. The program manifests four generations of one musical Estonian family: works by composer Rudolf Tobias (1973-1918) and by his daughter, composer Helen Tobias-Duesberg (1919-2010), conducting by his granddaughter Maaja Duesberg Roos (b.1945), with choral singing and children’s choir conducting by his great-granddaughter Leila Roos (b.1986). This Easter Sundayperformance also includes sacred choral selections by Tobias, the American premiere of Reekviem by Tobias-Duesberg, and the haunting Morning Star by Arvo Pärt, Estonia’s most famous contemporary composer.
