      Icebreaker II: Baltic Voices

      Seattle, February 13-15, 2004

      A three-day festival of concerts and symposium of contemporary music from
      the countries that surround the Baltic Sea: Denmark, Estonia, Finland,
      Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia and Sweden, with guest
      performers, composers and musicologists from each of these countries and
      the USA

      In three concerts, the Seattle Chamber Players will perform contemporary
      music from all nine countries of the Baltic Sea region. The festival will
      also involve a musicological symposium on the problems of contemporary
      Baltic music curated by Dr. Elena Dubinets. Each of the Baltic Sea
      countries will send its representatives to the festival. Leading
      musicologists from these countries will give one-hour presentations about
      the contemporary music scenes of their countries, and visiting composers
      will present their own music in additional one-hour seminars.
