Choir Tours to Tallinn
Discover the ancient Estonian capital of Tallinn, where the skyline is dominated by the steeple of the medieval Town Hall. Offering one of the best preserved Old Towns in Europe, Tallinn is full of history with fascinating museums, beautiful medieval architecture and a thriving café culture. You may wish to explore the Toompea Castle district and marvel at the Song Festival Grounds. Combining strong musical traditions and a hearty welcome, Estonia is becoming a popular choice for those who want to try something different. To enhance your experience, why not take your choir on a trip across the Baltic Sea to the contrasting Finnish capital of Helsinki?
Where to Sing
The Charles XI Lutheran Church, Niguliste Museum- Concert Hall and the Town Hall all have a regular concert series. It is also possible to sing in the splendid medieval cathedral located in the heart of the Castle District.
A visit to this spa town is an ideal day trip where theatres, spa halls and churches provide excellent performance opportunities, especially in the summer months. Choirs, whether offering a sacred or secular repertoire, have plenty of venues to choose from.
Our local concert organiser has contacts with many local choirs, who are keen to sing with visiting British choirs. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet local people and share a special choral experience. Joint concerts are inevitably followed by refreshments with your hosts!
