Freedom and Captivity Humanities Themed Event
Colby College Collegium’s debut at Greene Block + Studios in downtown Waterville. An exploration of repertoire from Estonian composers performed or premiered at the end of the Cold War. Popular, folk, and nationalistic vocal music from Estonia’s “Singing Revolution,” a historic, non-violent protest of occupation by the former Soviet Union. Selections from Veljo Tormis, Ester Mägi, and the centerpiece, Arvo Pärt’s chilling Berliner Messe for choir and chamber orchestra.
Free and open to the public.
