“The Singing Revolution”

A Single Nation, A Million Voices, The Fall of an Empire

film by James Tusty & Maureen Castle Tusty

Song was the weapon of choice when hundreds of thousands of Estonians gathered publicly year after year to sing forbidden patriotic songs, risking their lives for independence from decades of Soviet occupation. It is the story of humankind’s irrepressible drive for freedom and self-determination anchored in song and non-violence. In the first hour, watch portions of this remarkable documentary.

In the second hour we’ll hear from Foothill’s new Music Director Benjamin Hanson, who was in Estonia this spring as a part of the ongoing national choral gathering, a time where tens of thousands of people come together to sing! The evening will end recreating the message of the film – by learning and singing together traditional Estonian songs.  This will be a powerful, special event – we hope you can join us, and please invite your friends!
