Explanation: These are not the songs of the atelier, but music and performances of Kadri Hunt, conductor/singer, leader of the atelier.



The Nordic-Baltic countries have a rich tradition of great folksongs, full of emotion and clear-cut beauty. A repertoire you should surely sing in your own choir too! Children will work with the atelier conductor and a folk violinist, singing folksong arrangements with movement. There is also a possibility to join in with an instrument – if there are violin players among choristers, who would like to make music together with an experienced folk musician, they are welcome to bring their violins and play in addition to singing. This atelier will help you not to be afraid of long texts in strange languages – we will concentrate on music and try to use international refrains as much as possible.


"Folk music is old, but not old-fashioned. On the contrary, at the „Nordic music” atelier we are going to present it in a youthful and fashionable way, at the same time showing its beauty as well as playing and having fun with it."
