Heinavanker, Estonian Vocal Ensemble
Heinavanker, an Estonian vocal ensemble under the direction of composer Margo Kõlar, is a convocation of a few of Estonia’s finest voices performing ageless music, ancient to modern. While rooted in liturgical chant and Renaissance polyphony, the group’s repertoire also makes room for vitalizing arrangements of early Estonian folk hymns and runic songs and sacred works by contemporary composers such as Arvo Pärt and Cyrillus Kreek. In Europe, Heinavanker has been a familiar presence on festival and concert stages and on radio for three decades, and the group has toured Europe, South America, and North America with performances and master classes. This company will be working closely with our choral program, directed by Lisa Graham, in its mini-residency and concert.
