The EPCC’s chief conductor Daniel Reuss conducts at the XXV Estonian Song Celebrations „To Breathe as One“, which takes place in 2-5 July at the Song Celebration Grounds in Tallinn.

  1. There's something so very thrilling and unifying about hearing that many human voices in unison. The video clip gave me chills!

  2. Hi Willow,

    I do love to hear many voices. Whenever the Faure & Durufle Requiems are being performed I have to go. I cannot even imagine what 20,000 voices would sound like. One year I'd really love to hear this in person.
