Pärast pikaaegset tervise halvenemist lahkus 91aastane Herbert Valdsaar meie keskelt 3. veebruaril 2017. Ta oli ümbritsetud oma perega, tütred Elo ja Leelo ja nende pered.  

vilmsJaak Vilms tähistas oma 80. sünnipäeva 30. jaanuaril  Bostonis. Tema pojad, Andres ja Thomas, korraldasid talle juubelipidustuse Bostoni Hampshire Majas.

Why am I living in the United States? It’s my parents’ fault! Udo Jürima and Agnes, along with my grandparents, Kaarel and Eleanor Jürima left Estonia in September 1944, as did many others. They lived and worked near Munich (where I was born) for the Americans, until they were given the opportunity to emigrate to the United States in the 1950’s.


I attended schools in Chicago, Toronto, France at the Conservatory and in New York City at Juilliard, New School University and the Manhattan School of Music. I moved to Boston in the early 1970’s with my husband, MIT Professor of Physics, Ain Sonin (also Estonian). There our two sons, Juhan and Aldo were born.

 

We have lived near Boston for 45 years, during which time I established a small music conservatory where several Estonian born young artists have also taught, including Diana Liiv and Hando Nahkur.


Performing for many years and in many cities, I have always included a selection of Estonian songs in my programs to introduce this wonderful music to the general public. Audiences always seem to enjoy and be interested in the culture, art and language of this small, not well known country in the Baltic.

 

As I’m involved in a number of non-profit arts organizations, I always try to present Estonian music. Recently, as Chair/President of the Lexington Symphony Board, the orchestra and I introduced Arvo Pärt’s piano concerto and as part of Boston’s Cantata Singers, we performed the Boston premier of his Adam’s Lament.
