Nordic Student Singers' Summit 2014 Tartu Newsletter

April 2014 


All receivers of this e-mail, please send our newsletter personally to every NSSS 2014 participant! 

Dear NSSS 2014 Tartu participant!

 
The festival is getting nearer every day and the student choirs of Tartu are becoming more and more excited about the thought of welcoming altogether 1400 student singers from four different Northern countries. 
This newsletter continues with introducing yet another student choir from Estonia. Also we offer you an exclusive interview with a young composer Maria Kõrvits, who composed a musical work for this year gala concert. In addition to that we try to put you more in an appropriate mood for your unforgettable Tartu experience. 
Few days ago we launched a donating campaign for a building up of a festival arena in one big sports hall. Every offering is welcomed with gratitude and there are perks also included. Please take time to check the link below to view our promoting video and learn more about the campaign!

Me, Myself and Tartu

Eerik Säre
A basso from the Tartu University Chamber Choir is offering us his very own personal view on NSSS 2014 venue Tartu, the second biggest town in Estonia. 

We're waiting for your memories about NSSS! 

 
In this edition we have a chance to read about the first Estonian choir at NSSS in 1993. As a matter of fact we are gathering memories about previous NSSS festivals and therefore call on you to send us your valuable recollections. Every flashback would be a great inspiration to us all and help to bind us, the organisers, better together with you, the participants. Every piece of memory (a text, a picture etc.) is more than welcome!

From a Busy Metropolis to a Quiet Small Town

There are a lot of foreign exchange students from all parts of the world in Tartu. I was lucky to have a chance to ask some questions from one of them, Saburi Ken, a Singaporean, about his experience of studying in Tartu. Let’s see what he said.

A Small Correction


In our first newsletter we declared, based on an interview with Siiri Odrats-Koni, that the Academic Women's Choir of the University of Tartu was the very first choir from Estonia that participated in NSSS 1993 Trondheim. However, a diligent reader of our newsletter, Terhi Vörlund-Wallenius from Florakören has brought to our attention that in fact the mixed choir Noorus from Tallinn was the first choir in Estonia to participate in NSSS 1990 Turku. We thank Terhi from the bottom of our heart for  pointing out this extremely important fact.
