"We will continue to perform Voces Tallinn's meaningful and demanding repertoire, expanding the permanent repertoire towards more modern music. I consider it important to continue developing the choir's vocal image, collaborating with the best Estonian and foreign performers and composers," Portsmuth said of her appointment.
