TOUCH OF THE MUSE #7
28 March Pärnu Concert Hall
Soloists from Pärnu County Music Schools
Conductor Andres Kaljuste
One of the core missions of Pärnu City Orchestra is to offer young musicians the opportunity to perform with professional musicians on the big stage. The traditional concert Touch of the Muse has been held in cooperation with Pärnu Music School since 2012.
The concert offers young musicians the chance to perform on the big stage with a symphony orchestra and discover their musical potential.
This year marks the seventh concert in the series. The concert will bring to the stage brilliant soloists from Pärnu County music schools, whose performances will be supported by conductor Andres Kaljuste and the Pärnu City Orchestra.
Pärnu City Orchestra was founded in 1994 and this year celebrates its 30th anniversary season, as it keeps classical music in the heart of the resort town.
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.
During the jubilee season, you are invited to experience the magic of music and discover new worlds of sound with the Pärnu City Orchestra.
