The Foundation for Estonian Arts and Letters in the U.S. participates every April in the celebration of Estonian culture and arts. It has been a long tradition. As a part of the program, a prize is awarded to a person who has earned special recognition in supporting and/or advancing Estonian cultural activities abroad.
It is thus a pleasure to announce that the jury of the Foundation, Juta Kurman, Raul Pettai, Aire Salmre, has decided to give this year’s Culture Award to Mr. Andrejs Jansons, who has ably led the New York Estonian Womens’s Choir since 1995, bringing it to a high artistic level.
