In Partnership with the Embassy of Estonia

Performed by the Youth Mixed Choir Vox Populi from Estonia, 'Meditations with Tormis,' based on the choral cycles 'Etudes in Keys' and 'Nature Pictures' by Veljo Tormis, is a musical journey in the natural landscapes of Estonia, the variation of the four seasons and their corresponding patterns of harmonies. The harmony-language of composer Veijo Tormis is illustrated by photos of Estonian nature in different seasons. The concert-play has been produced to celebrate the 85th birthday of Veljo Tormis.

With more than 60 members, the Youth Mixed Choir Vox Populi has collaborated closely with the directors on several other unique plays featuring choral works. In this composition, the female and male choirs of the Youth Mixed Choir Vox Populi will perform movements separately and together. From the cycle 'Nature Pictures', the movement 'Autumn Landscapes' will be performed as a mixed choir, 'Spring Sketches' as a female choir, and 'Summer Motifs' and ‘Winter Patterns' with female and male choirs as intended by the composer.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT ART EXCHANGE BRIDGES THE WORLD CULTURAL IMMERSION DAYS SHOWCASE THE WORLD WORLD ARTISTS EXPERIENCES SALUTES VOLUNTEERS

In February, World Artists Experiences and the Embassy of the People's Republic of China's Cultural Office worked together to present their first joint student art exchange between American and Chinese elementary students.

The event was billed as a "visual dialogue" between Yijin Elementary School in the Zhejiang Province and Crofton Woods Elementary School in Crofton, Maryland.

The opening celebration, which included songs from both countries performed by students, was held on February 21 at Crofton Woods Elementary. Members from the Embassy of the People's Republic of China, and Maryland state and county government representatives attended the reception, as did local artists and members of the community. The final song was sung in darkness. As the song continued to describe the importance of children's lights in the world, the room was filled with candles that the children lit.

Some of the artwork was taken by Crofton Woods to be presented at the National Art Teachers' Association in New York City.

World Artists Experiences' Cultural Immersion day trips to Washington D.C. to enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of countries from around the world are becoming extremely popular. To see photos from past Cultural Immersion days, click here: European Union Immersion Day Photos
