The Otterbein Concert Choir will embark on a 10-day performance tour of Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia on Dec. 11. The Baltic countries are known for their love of choral music and are home to distinguished choral composers Arvo Pärt, Veljo Tormis, and Erik Esenvalds.

The Concert Choir, under the direction of Director of Choral Activities Gayle Walker, will perform in the historic churches of Talinn, Vilnius, Riga, and Kaunas; share concerts with local choirs; and partake in cultural exchanges. In addition to performances, the singers will tour museums of art and history, historic town centers, and cathedrals. Since 2000, hundreds of singers have toured internationally with the Concert Choir to locations including Japan, Austria, the Czech Republic, France, China, Ireland, and Germany.
