For the first time ever, the Embassy partner organizations (World Artists Experiences and the International Division of Maryland’s Office of the Secretary of State) from the state of Maryland giving you a unique opportunity to discover the unseen documentary Headwind Hall about the charismatic conductor Tõnu Kaljuste. Producer and co-writer of Headwind Hall, Artur Talvik, offers a light-hearted summary of the film. Headwind Hall is a documentary film about the conductor Tõnu Kaljuste and his crazy idea of building an opera house on the estate of the past inventor Schmidt in Naissaar; an island which even today has no regular ferry line, no electricity and only one permanent resident.

I hope you can join Lonny Smith, Mary Sugar and me when we present "Lenny, Kurt & Harold" in the Indigo Room of the Atlas Performing Arts Center. Even if these names aren't all familiar to you, we're sure that much of the music will be. "Lenny" was Leonard Bernstein, the true Renaissance man of 20th century American music, who wrote, among many other works, the music for "West Side Story." "Kurt" was Kurt Weill, who wrote the cutting-edge music for "The Threepenny Opera" in his native Germany before coming to the U.S. where he had a string of Broadway hits. And "Harold" was dear Harold Arlen, whose voluminous works include the music for the movie "The Wizard of Oz." We love their music and we're sure you will, too.
"Lenny, Kurt & Harold" will be the featured performance in an exciting "Voix de Ville" variety show evening. When ordering tickets by phone (202-399-7993), please be sure to specify the Indigo Room "Voix de Ville" show on Fejbruary 28.
