The only professional symphony orchestra in West-Estonia has developed and enriched the local cultural life and Estonian music culture in general, offering high quality musical experiences to the summer capital, the whole of Estonia and international audiences.
Pärnu City Orchestra has collaborated with several prestigious festivals, performed with internationally renowned conductors and soloists as well as young up-and-coming talent, creating unforgettable musical experiences.
The orchestra's mission is to find young musicians and offer them the opportunity to perform with a professional ensemble, and to encourage them in their career choice.
The multifaceted and creative seasons with music from many genres have offered many performances at Pärnu's traditional events, various musical productions, and operas. In addition, many Estonian compositions have been recorded, valuing the works of domestic authors.
The orchestra's performances have found their way onto recordings and film soundtracks, providing experiences on cinema screens and in the homes of music lovers alike. We value the creation of brilliant music and create joy with timeless music.
