Everyone in Estonia is Singing

Is there anything more wondrous — musically, communally and, when you learn more, politically — than Estonian choral singing?

Every five years, Estonians converge on Tallinn for the massive Estonian Song and Dance Celebration and they sing national Estonian songs. This particular Estonian choral singing tradition  started in 1869 when about 1,000 members of men’s choirs and brass bands performed. After World War II the Soviets forced the inclusion of children’s choirs, raising the number of participants substantially, and insisted that the repertoire include foreign songs. Today, over 100,000 gather in Estonia for the event; up to 30,000 are in the choir, 80,000 are in the audience. Want to go? Make your reservation TODAY!
