AURORA BOREALIS I 55th jubilee concert
From ancient times, it has been believed that the lights in heaven were souls of the dead and that they had magical effects. Of course, there is a fascinating beauty in northern lights, but from century to century these wonderful light beams were treated with the utmost respect. Northerns taught from generation to generation that if you disrespect the lights it would bring bad fortune. On the other hand, Nordic mythology tells us that the northern lights were reflections or glow from the shields and armour of the female warrior Valkyrie.
One thing is certain – the Sámi (aka Lapps) word for northern lights is „guovssahas“, meaning „the light you can hear“. Tallinn University of Technology Chamber Choir brings you the light, which is heard in a magnificent echo at the Kaja Cultural Centre on 11th of December, starting at 18:00.
Northern lights are created with sound by conductors Rihards Zariņš and Austėja Pėželytė.
Solos are sung by Kristjan Rikas, Emily Joy Krohn and Carolyn Pippar.
Regardless of the difficult times, we want to surround as many people as possible with music, so for the first time in the history of our chamber choir, we present the concert in two ways – in addition to the physical concert, it is possible to celebrate our 55th birthday with us online as well.
Come and celebrate aurora borealis and our 55th anniversary with us!
Tickets are available in Fienta.
NB! At the concert stand the rules laid down by the government, so please take your certificate of vaccination or having had COVID-19.
