Newsletter for October 2013.


Nordic Student Singers' Summit 2014 Tartu Newsletter

October 2013 


To be sent personally to every NSSS 2014 participant

Dear NSSS 2014 Tartu participant!

 
The dream team of NSSS 2014 Tartu is happy to welcome you and wish you all a pleasant beginning of an academic year. New and exciting lectures have already started and are reawakening our curiosity which has been a bit aestivated under the hot summer sun. Therefore it is our decision also to satisfy the curiosity of every NSSS participant with the first edition of a NSSS 2014 Tartu Newsletter. Actually this doesn’t mean that we intend to publish a new edition every month, but we insure you that we’ll do our best to keep you sufficiently updated. All in all, we invite you to skim through this first edition of our magazine and hope it will help you to set your mind better on the upcoming festival.

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! 
 
More info about collecting memoires will be published soon at NSSS 2014 Tartu homepage. 

Meet Annely Tank – the Head of Estonian, Danish and Icelandic choirs

Coping with summer in Tartu 


There’s no doubt that Tartu is a full-time student town: there’s even a well-known cliché in Estonia that when summer arrives the whole town becomes practically extinct. But despite that most students prefer to spend their summer holidays as far away from their lecture halls as possible, Tartu has quite a lot to offer even in summer!
