The European Jazz Orchestra - a group that switches out its line-up, composers and conductors every year - is set to perform in Tallinn's Russian Culture Center on April 27 at 19:00 local time, when ERR broadcasts the show live to European Broadcasting Union stations.

A highlight of Jazzkaar, Estonia's biggest jazz festival, the concert will follow with another in Turku, Finland - Tallinn's sister city as European Capital of Culture in 2011.

Those two shows will be the climax of a three-week tour across Europe by an orchestra of up-and-coming musicians from European and North American countries. The music is composed and conducted by Raul Sööt from Estonia and Jere Laukkanen from Finland.

Since its inception, the orchestra has had 254 band members, including seven Estonians, who have performed 204 concerts all over the world.
