Choir concerts
FINAL PLAN
Update from Thu 27.03, 12:30

NB! Choir concerts are on both, Thursday and Friday!
NB! From our part the plan will not change but if some changes are needed we will let the choirs know who are involved.
NB! Please send your concert programme OR 2 keywords of the programme + some names of the composers (from your programme) to your contact person by March 24th. This is asked so that this valuable information could be put in the printed brochures.

Number before the choir refers to the performance list.

One choir has 20-22 minutes of stage time. As NSSS 2014 has a theme "Me/We" it would be nice if at least some of the songs are Nothern and somehow are specially connected to your choir. When the choir finishes their singing, they will change sides with the next and for this time a musician takes over. It would be nice if someone from each choir would introduce the choir and/or the programme in general with a few sentences.
All choirs can listen to other choirs but please enter the halls only during clapping.

Descriptions of the concert places are below the two tables.

1. Assembly Hall of the University of Tartu

Assembly Hall of the University of Tartu is located in the University of Tartu Main Building, which is one of the finest specimens of classicist architecture in Estonia. Its neoclassical elegance and simplicity make the Assembly Hall the university's most beautiful venue. The hall's inauguration ceremony was held on 31 July 1809. From that day on, all major events of the university have been celebrated in the Assembly Hall.
Assembly Hall is one of the best (maybe even the best) concert hall in Estonia. We are very lucky, aren't we?

2. Former church of the University of Tartu


Church of the University of Tartu was a church in the back of the main building built in 1860. Back then it was used by the congregation of the church. After the II World War it was used as a humanitarian sciences library. The furnishing was removed and a dividing ceiling of concrete was built. So, today the ones who have concerts and performances there are literally between the heaven and the ground. In the first floors there is nowadays an archive of the University and the Office of Academic Affairs.

3. St. John's Church

St. John's Church (Estonian: Jaani kirik) is a Brick Gothic Lutheran church, one of the landmarks of the city of Tartu. It's one of the most beloved places for concerts in Tartu as it has a beautiful soft acoustics.
The most outstanding feature of St. John's is its wealth of terracotta figurines surrounding the church's exterior. Originally, there were more than a thousand hand-made figurines, each different from the others; now, about 200 have survived. The large number of individual figurines has given birth to the hypotheses that they might have been modelled after citizens of Tartu; on the other hand, some of them wear crowns, which hints they might depict someone else.

4. Tartu Uus Teater (Tartu New Theatre)

At present Tartu New Theatre is not a house or a stage or a group or a paying job, but rather an open platform for new ideas. This theatre is based on the possibility that theatre can only exist upon free will, not because of a tradition, occupation or obligation. Of course this might mean that Tartu New Theatre will be gone before you know it, because there’s no will to do theatre. But then again it might mean that Tartu New Theatre will stay, and further more will survive longer than any other institutionally secured theatre, not depending on cultural, political or personal drafts.
The theatre is a newest place for concerts in Tartu, even it works in an old building with smells and tastes of the past times. Lovely place, really!

5. Tasku Center

Tasku Trade Center is a mall in Tartu downtown that has more than 50 shops, cinema and offices. These three choirs who will be performing here have a great opportunity to be seen by very many people.

6. The University of Tartu History Museum

The University of Tartu History Museum showcases the history of science and university education in Tartu from the 17th century to the present day. The museum is located on Toome Hill, which has also been poetically described as an abode of the muses. Here the museum occupies several historical university buildings dating from the 19th century - the former university library built in the choir of the ruins of a former dome cathedral, the Old Observatory and part of the Old Anatomical Theatre. White Hall of the museum is really a place to sing in Tartu - it has a touch of intimacy as well perceived very majestically.

The University of Tartu History Museum is part of a larger university institution - Museums of the University of Tartu, which also includes the university’s Art Museum and Natural History Museum. All three cooperate closely with one another.
