North American Tours
Next Tour – November 1 – 18, 2018
The EPCC with the Tallinn Chamber Choir and founding conductor Tõnu Kaljuste.
The artistic team who started it all, return to further explore their sound world, with Arvo Pärt’s powerful Adam’s Lament, and new works by Estonians Tõnu Korvits (just out on ECM), Veljo Tormis, Erkki-SvenTüür, and Australian Brett Dean.
A sold-out Carnegie Hall classical choral concert doesn’t happen every day, but when the Estonian choir came to town in June 2014, they created just that. It was a culmination of sorts for these regular visitors to the most prestigious stages in the U.S. and Europe. When the EPCC landed in New York for its first North American tour in 1995, they were known only as the performers on the Grammy-nominated, best-selling CD of fellow-Estonian Arvo Pärt’s austere Te Deum. Ten tours later, they are welcome to sing whatever they like, at the most prestigious stages throughout North America, to a wide circle of fans, and with glowing reviews.
“so wondrously talented a group of singers… The selections and the performances were so fine that they left you feeling like an ingrate, greedily hungry for more.” The New York Times
