About the Event

Our spring season kicks off with the beloved Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir in their first visit to the Northeast since selling out Carnegie Hall in June 2014. The music of their homeland, in all its glory and gravitas, anchors their mission and repertoire, but the 25-voice ensemble brings equal might to everything from Gregorian chant to the present day. The Washington Post declares, “the choir’s performances inspire a transporting awe,” while Newsday praises their “music-making of sublime and self-abnegating mastery.” They have been nominated for no less than fourteen Grammy’s across a range of styles, and they visit Princeton with a program of favorites from Northern Europe: Tchaikovsky, Tormis, Sibelius, and the uncrowned king of Estonian music, Arvo Pärt, whose vocal music is written exclusively for the EPCC. Our beautiful and resounding University Chapel will be the perfect space to revel in the power of the human voice.
