    Beautiful weather

    Marju Lorentson photo exhibitionThe world is filled with rapidly changing light and shadow, colour and sound, silence and feeling. Perhaps there are only two seasons in Estonia after all – a cold and windy spring with a few spots of sunshine, followed by a rain-soaked, foggy autumn with a few proper cold days.Sometimes I feel lucky – the four seasons reveal themselves and I manage to capture the brief moment and share the joy.If the viewer stops and thinks for a moment, I’ve managed to pass something on and communicate, even briefly. And that’s not nothing in our ever speedier lives, is it?Marju Lorentson

    Barrel Organ Festival

    In Estonian history the street organ music hasn’t spread widely and therefore a long streetorgan music tradition doesn’t exist. However Estonian Theatre and Music Museum has a remarkable and valuable collection of mechanical music instruments. Many of these needed a lot of work and the need to repair the instruments that were out of order, grew out the other important collaboration field. In addition of fun and entertainment, street organ festivals are the best way to introduce mechanical music and instrument’s history to a wider audience.Opening concert on Thursday, 29/06 at 17:00 Rüütli square.
