Get a sneak preview of Laulupidu 2019 performed by Kooskõlas at St Stephen’s church

They have put in months of work to prepare for XXVII Laulupidu – the epic singing festival that marks 150 years since the first “party of singing” was held in 1869 to celebrate 50 years from abolishing slavery. This was initiated by the choir “Vanemuine” at the instigation of Johann Voldemar Jannsen.

Before Kooskõlas singers head off to Estonia, there will be one more get-together to perform the full repertoire they have been learning – note by note, vowel by vowel.

Everyone is invited to come along and experience the XXVII Laulupidu getting a taster of songs that will be heard at the singing festival in Estonia.
