Eventbrite - Mysterious Connection Concert
 
The Mysterious Connection refers to the common language roots of Hungary, Finland, and Estonia.  The languages of these three countries are referred to collectively as Finno-Ugric languages. The three languages have diverged to the point that citizens understand very little of each other, but maybe not coincidentally, much of the world's greatest choral music comes from these three small countries.  Some experts think that the nature of the languages themselves has something to do with this.  Our choirs will perform fantastic music from each of these countries by Arvo Pärt, Veljo Tormis, Zoltán Kodaly, Tellu Turkka, Péteris Plakidis, Gustav Ernesaks, Peep Sarpik, Pärt Uusberg and others. In addition, there will be premieres of new commissioned works; Nagasaki by Eric Tuan, Flutter a' Folds by Anne Hege, and The Moment of Here, which sets the poetry of the 5th century Chinese poet T'ao Ch'ien by Mark Winges. The Piedmont East Bay Children's Choir will also be joined on this concert by our friends Les Petits Chanteurs de Laval from Québec, Canada.
