NEH ESTONIAN CHAMBER CHOIR
Sunday May 1st, 3:00pm
Doors open 2:30
The NEH Chamber Choir*, conducted by Maret Alango, was formed in 2007 by aspiring musicians of the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre. NEH’s repertoire includes new Estonian choral music, composed by young composers, many of whom are current or former members of the choir. In addition to giving concerts around Estonia, NEH has also participated in the Estonian National Song Festivals. NEH has given over 50 premieres of works by Estonian composers, and the choir’s members have gone on to form the next generation of Estonian composers.
Maret Alango (b. 1986) is an Estonian choral conductor, who works with a number of the country’s most outstanding collectives, including the Boys Choir of the Estonian National Opera. Her previous engagements have included the St. Michael’s Boys Choir, the Estonian Radio Children’s Choir, in addition to having founded the chamber choir “NEH” together with composer Riho Esko Maimets.
Alango began conducting while enrolled at the Tallinn Music High School and continued her studies under Ants Üleoja at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre. She is also active as a singer and songwriter, having performed as a member of early music groups “Heinavanker” and Vox Clamantis. In 2009, a CD was recorded with songs by Maret Alango.
