In the 21st Century, the Baltic region of Northern Europe has become one of the most excit­ing new resources for choral musi­cians. The cul­tural her­itage of singing in the region is mil­lenia old and serves an impor­tant func­tion as the entire his­tory of the region in encoded in song. Despite its grow­ing pop­u­lar­ity in the United States and its cul­tural impor­tance, the vast major­ity of this reper­toire remains unknown and inac­ces­si­ble to Amer­i­can choral schol­ars. (Dr. Geoffrey Boers, University of Washington)  

The Arizona Masterworks Chorale brings this exciting program to the Valley of the Sun to inspire, entertain, and inform our community of music lovers.  

Passport to Travel will be performed without intermission
