It has become a tradition that the agency Corelli Music introduces the Holy Week with beautiful Passion music under the church vaults. The concerts titled PASSION in renowned series "Church Holidays in St Mary's Land" will introduce countertenor Ka Bo Chan and Corelli Baroque Orchestra on period instruments, led by young conductor Martin Sildos. The concerts will take place on Saturday, 12 April at St John's Church in Tartu and on Palm Sunday, 13 April at St John's Church in Tallinn. The programme presents countertenor, a mystical sounding type of voice. This charming male voice will perform lovely works by baroque masters: solo cantatas „Wiederstehe doch der Sünde" BWV 54 and „Vergnügte Ruh', beliebte Seelenlust" BWV 170 by Johann Sebastian Bach and motet „Filiae maestae Jerusalem" RV 638 by Antonio Vivaldi. Additionally, the concert programme includes Passion-spirited orchestral works by Baroque period composers.

He has collaborated with many Estonian conductors, soloists, choirs and orchestras, concerts often take him to stages and festivals outside Estonia.
