4 May – concert of ISCM World Music Days

Collegium Musicale Chamber Choir was chosen to perform in the ISCM World Music Days in Tallinn 2019. Our concert will take place on 4th of May in Tallinn St. Mary’s Cathedral (Dome Church).

Estonia with its capital Tallinn is honoured to organize the prestigious annual contemporary music festival initated by the International Society for Contemporary Music. The festival hosts hundreds of professional musicians and presents the freshest and most exciting new music in 2019, including music performed by groups of different sizes and nature, soloists presenting different instruments, as well as sounds from different acoustical and electronic sources.

Since its founding in 1922, the International Society for Contemporary Music has been the world’s premier network for new music. Each year, its festival is hosted in a different city around the globe. Vancouver hosted the ISCM World New Music Days in 2017 whereas in 2018, the festival took place in Beijing, and Tallinn will be succeeded by Auckland, New Zealand in 2020. According to the concept of the festival, there will be at least one piece on the programme from every member country of the society and in addition an abundance of Estonian music – both new commissions and highlights of the heritage.
