In August 2006, True North realized a double project in the Baltic
States, with performances in Pärnu, Estonia and Vilnius, Lithuania.
Working with the remarkable Estonian soprano soloist Veera Tales
andorganist Piret Aidulo, True North collaborated with Jaanus Toorim,
director of the Pärnu Organ Festival, to produce a concert at the
historic 18th century St. Elizabeth Church featuring works by Leo
Normet, Peeter Vähi, and the premiere of a new song cycle by
Canadian composer Ted Dawson.
The latter work was written in the
Estonian language to texts by the well known poet Andres Ehin, who
also attended the performance.
