A still from “To Breathe As One” shows the phenomenal music festival known as Laulupidu in Estonia.

Saturday, Feb. 28 at 3 p.m. — WOODSTOCK, — Billings Farm & Museum, gateway to Vermont’s rural heritage, will host the award-winning film “To Breathe As One,” featuring a special appearance by filmmakers, Jim and Maureen Tusty, on Saturday, Feb. 28 at 3 p.m. as part of the fifth annual Woodstock Vermont Film Series.

About “To Breathe As One”

Every five years, 30,000 people in the small country of Estonia join voices in Laulupidu, the National Song Festival. More than a music festival, it’s a miracle that at least twice in history gave freedom to that country. “To Breathe As One” explores the beauty and meaning of the choral festival through the eyes of the young members of the California-based Piedmont East Bay Children’s Choir, one of the few American choirs invited to participate. The film is not rated.

Tickets prices are $5-11. Billings Farm & Museum is located at 5302 River Road, Woodstock.  For more info, visit www.billingsfarm.org/filmfest or call 802-457-2355.
