Tallinn School Choir Wins Vienna Youth Competition ({{commentsTotal}})


The chamber choir of Tallinna Muusikakeskkool, a Tallinn secondary school specializing in music, won at Summa Cum Laude, an international youth music festival in Vienna.

"It is a wonderful recognition and definitely a continuing motivator for the chamber choir, which has only sung together for two years in its current lineup. The competition took place in the Musikverein's Golden Hall, which is known to the general public as a venue for New Year's concerts; singing in the hall stirred powerful emotions for the choir,” said conductor Janne Fridolin, who was named Young Conductor of the Year in Estonia in 2010.

The Tallinn-based choir's repertoire included pieces from Arvo Pärt, Veljo Tormis, Anton Bruckner and Morten Lauridsen. While in town, the choir also gave performances at a Bratislava church and the Vienna Boys' Choir's new concert hall.

The festival brought together 1,300 young choral and orchestral performers from around the world.
