(Choirs, please see your timetables HERE.)

The programme is connected with previous festivals - there is an opening, choir concerts, and a big gala concert. We will also have a conductors’ workshop, Festival Clubs, the Estonian Music Corner.

CHOIR CONCERTS will be both, on Thursday and Friday. Altogether there are 10 good concerts in Tartu oldtown. The sites are really close (5-10 min) so listeners have a wonderful opportunity to have a true festival feeling and visit many concerts! As NSSS 2014 has a theme "Me/We", at least some songs each choir will sing are Northern and somehow important to the choirs. Every choir introduces itself, and at every concert an instrumentalist will play as well. Be sure to arrive at the concert place early enough! Otherwise there might be no places left.

GALA CONCERT "Sea. Forest. City" will be on Sat, April 26th at 7 pm. Just for one night, A. Le Coq Sports Hall will be fully re-built inside to be a proper concert hall. The main issue – gala concert repertoire – was formed by asking every choir to choose one song which expresses their national identity in the best way. An Estonian composer Mrs Maria Kõrvits has written a piece that combines these melodies and sounds together (sea, forest, city). Between the soughs and swashes you will definitely recognise melodies from "Dancing Queen", "Finlandia", "Sommarpsalm", "Tuljak" etc. The concert will be fully directed: texts, sounds, movements, video installations, lighting.

MUSIC CORNER. During NSSS the Music Corner will be working. It will have 2 components: introducing Estonian choir music (selling and listening CD’s, sheet music, brochures etc) and festival choirs’ music. The list of the CD's and sheet music will be published soon.
