“…totally compelling.”
-Grego Applegate Edwards

Sometimes it’s possible to discover another world in your own backyard. In this case, that world is the tiny Northern European nation of Estonia--just 4,450 miles away. Across that distance comes Heinavanker—an esteemed choral ensemble from a nation known for its passion for song. Led by composer Margo Kolar, Heinavanker’s music is rooted in liturgical chant and Renaissance polyphony. Their repertoire, however, draws from a wide range of sources—from Estonian folk hymns and runic song, to sacred contemporary compositions by fellow Estonian Arvo Pärt. This is the group’s second visit to the University, and coincides with an American tour that includes an appearance at the famed Cloisters of the Metropolitan Museum of Arts in New York. 

World Traditions: For the culturally curious, this is programming that will delight. Selections feature chamber ensembles from across the globe, inspired by the University’s commitment to preparing our students as citizens of the world.
