Exhibition “The Children of the New East”

Tallinn Art Hall Gallery

This exhibition seeks out the non-existent memory of the children born after the pivotal events of the 1980s and 1990s, and these children’s place in a globalised culture. How does a generation of twenty-somethings view itself, born in the wake of the children of winners and losers, and freedom?

Medieval Shrovetide Carnival

Great Guild Hall of the Estonian History Museum

In the medieval times, there was no sledging or eating pastries, but there was playing, dancing, competing, and eating all sorts of delicacies. It was the last feast before the big fast while having fun and eating and drinking as much as one liked was allowed.

Women’s Day concerts in the most beautiful manors and music lounge, wonderful music and celebrating romantic anniversaries. Successful concert series of concert agency Corelli Music „Romantic Manors“ and „Toompea Music Lounge“ continue.

Eesti Laul 2017
04 Mar
Saku Arena/ETV channel

This is the final concert of Eesti Laul 2017, the Estonian national selection for Eurovision Song Contest. The tickets for the main show might be sold out, but there should be some tickets available for the final rehearsal that takes place before the concert. But if that won’t work, then the live broadcast will also take place. We do not usually recommend watching TV, but this time we will make an exception.

Philly Joe’s Jazz Club

In the framework of this unique European collaboration project, in addition to the acoustic instruments, all musicians will also use electronic devices. Sid Hille’s musical creation, which has won several prizes at international competitions, will be played at the concert.
