The Song Festival of Tartu 2019

The main concert of the Tartu Song Festival gathers different types of choirs and their sounds under the arc of the festival grounds.
Children’s choirs sing with boys’ choirs, women with children, and men’s choirs, after listening to the women, get into a singing dialogue with mixed choirs, for example. Of course, all the singers will come together to become a single, unified choir.
The hallmark choral music will be performed by more than 8500 singers at the main concert, ranging from kindergarteners to grandparents. The programme contains works from Arvo Pärt, Veljo Tormis, Gustav Ernesaks, Miina Härma and many more.
The concert, beginning at the Tartu Song Festival Grounds at 18, features brass bands and includes the Vanemuine Symphony Orchestra.
Any proper song festival begins with a procession – audience and guests can come and see the singers and musicians in the afternoon in the centre of Tartu where they are nicely lined up to progress from the heart of the city to the festival grounds.
The performers gather for the procession at Tartu Town Hall Square, Vabaduse Avenue and on Küüni and Poe streets.
The road to Tartu Song Festival Grounds goes along Vabaduse Avenue from which we wave to the statue of Kalevipoeg and the River Emajõgi.
The journey continues on Lai, Jakobi, Fr. R. Kreutzwaldi and Fr. Tuglase streets. These last two honourable men will definitely be greeted as well, at least in our thoughts.
