A youth mixed choir from Estonia known as Vox Populi will perform a free concert play at 7 p.m. on Sept. 15 at the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, 801 Chase St., Annapolis.
A second free performance will be given at 7 p.m. on Sept. 16 at St. Charles High School in Waldorf, Charles County. Both the city of Annapolis and Charles County have sister relationships with sites in Estonia.
The concert play is described as a “musical journey in the natural landscapes of Estonia.” based on the writings of Veljo Tormis and in celebration of his 85th birthday.
Founded in 2006, Vox Populi’s concerts are inspired by Estonian and Finno-Ugric folklore with the aim of offering memorable moments to the singers and the audience and to bring people together through music. The group has won top awards in choir competitions throughout Europe. Its conductor, Janne Fridolin, was honored as the Best Young Conductor of 2010 and received additional accolades in 2013 and 2014 from the Estonian Choral Association.
Vox Populi’s appearance is presented by World Artists Experiences, an organization bridging international understanding through cultural diplomacy, in partnership with the Embassy of Estonia. Additional information is available at www.worldartists.org.
