Although we are among the smaller European nations with just over six million inhabitants, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania have not only produced many well-known conductors, instrumentalists and singers, but also three contemporary choral music cultures that have found international acclaim in recent decades. 100 years ago, the three countries declared their hard-won independence. To mark this occasion, the Konzerthaus in Berlin is opening the doors and halls for the ten-day Baltic Festival!
