Singing in the nave

Musée d'Orsay, the nave© Musée d'Orsay / Sophie Boegly
You rarely see a Baltic town without at least one choir and an open-air stage filled with traditional customs in summer. All for the pleasure of singing together. And with the hope of one day taking part in the major song and dance festivals regularly held in Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius.

These ensembles from different countries regularly put on performances in the museum’s nave on weekends to share their passion for vocal music. A repertoire inspired by rural traditional and ancestral beliefs.
