Our tour is entitled “Finland & The Baltics: The Hidden Treasures of Europe.” We will be performing and sightseeing in such locations as Helsinki, Finland; Riga, Latvia; and Tallin, Estonia. The history, culture, and love of classical music in these countries are rich and unparalleled. We once again will be led by the stellar team at Firebird Fine Arts Tours.
