Home to 13 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Baltics, with their astonishing emphasis on choral music, made it easy for the Philadelphia Boys Choir and Chorale to immerse themselves in the fantastic culture of the region. The tour ranged from collaborations with some of the Baltics' best musical ensembles to performances at prominent music festivals and concert venues in historic and exceptional venues, including the House of Blackheads in Estonia and Temppeliaukio Rock Church in Helsinki. The choir also performed at the U.S. Embassy in Tallinn on the 4th of July.
