Estonian Song and Dance Celebration. Laulu ja Tantsupidu.

The venue of the Song Celebration is the Tallinn Song Festival Grounds (Tallinna Lauluväljak). The Song Festival Grounds fit up to 100,000 people. The performers sing under an arch, that carries sound evenly over the whole spectator area. The Song Festival Grounds have hosted the celebration since 1960 and was the place, where the “singing revolution” took place in 1988.

One of the highlights of the Song and Dance Celebration is the procession, which passes through the main streets of Tallinn and reaches the Song Festival Grounds. All performers attend the procession while thousands of spectators cheer the singers and dancers along the 5 km route.

The motto of the 27th Song Celebration and the 20th Dance Celebration is The Land of My Fathers, the Land that I Love. It comes from a patriotic poem written by the much loved Estonian poet Lydia Koidula. The lyrics were sung at the first Song Celebration 150 years ago and they have since become the Song Celebration anthem, where the audience joins in, standing. It is an expression of our love for Estonia.

The first Song Celebration was held at a time when Estonia had not yet achieved its independence and education in Estonian was only available at primary schools. Today, however, we are preparing for the 27th Song Celebration and the 20th Dance Celebration, Estonia has become a model of a successful e-government and recently celebrated her centenary.

Christmas Concert

Primary school Starše (OŠ Starše)/December 21, 2018

A concert of two choirs (OŠ Starše and POŠ Marjeta) with guests from Austria was held in the church of St. John the Baptist in Starše. By singing Christmas songs children were telling a story about Christmas bears. Christmas bears had a special Role on Christmas eve, their responsibility was not to let anyone spend Christmas eve alone. Selected music programme and the sweet sound of children’s voices took us to magical Christmas time. Time of great joy, pleasant chatting, wonderful memories, scent of cinnamon in the air, love, and of course singing. We concluded the concert with world’s best-known Christmas song Holy Night, which invited everybody to sing along.
