This three-week course takes us to two of the most musical northern nations in Europe, Estonia and Finland. Known as “The Singing Nation,” Estonia, on the eastern coast of the Baltic Sea, achieved freedom from Russia in 1991 not with bloodshed, but with music. The rugged Nordic country of Finland produced one of the greatest composers of the early 20th C, Jean Sibelius, as well as some of the most talented orchestral conductors in the world.

We’ll also dip into some exhilarating traditional music from these two countries.

Listen to a sample of the music we will be discovering:
