Festival Description

In summer 2005 Tallinn Chamber Music Festival had its opening concert with a great amount of publicity. The Festival takes place in the historic concert halls and churches in one of the most beautiful cities of the Baltic States. The audience from Tallinn and all over Estonia together with tourists will enjoy numerous classical music concerts. Tallinn Chamber Music Festival is created to enrich and add some classical spice to the busy cultural life in Tallinn. It is the only major music event in Estonia that presents the talent of Estonian musicians alone.
