In 2018 the three Baltic nations of Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania—home of the “Singing Revolution” —will jointly celebrate their 100th anniversary of statehood and independence. In the Baltics, singing is cultural and historical. Choral music was vital in developing and maintaining a sense of national identity during many years of occupation, as well as providing a means of creative resistance; and so it retained its central role within the culture.
On March 24, 2018, the Seattle Choral Company, along with six participating area choirs, will salute this centennial with a concert demonstrating the sheer beauty and excellence of choral music from the Baltic countries.
