Estonia 100 sing-along electronically creates first global united choir Published: 17.08.2018

The Estonia 100 sing-along taking place on Sunday, August 19 will bring about a first ever electronic global Estonian united choir. Registration begins today via the Estonia 100 app or on the website.

“Anyone, no matter where they are in the world, can take part in the Estonia 100 sing-along taking place on August 19. If you can’t make it to the Tallinn Song Festival Grounds, you can take part at any of the 35 sing-alongs across Estonia or simply join in at home surrounded by your family,” said Estonia 100 Head of Major Events Margus Kasterpalu. “In order to unite everyone around the world, we ask that you register for the global Estonian united choir. Starting today, you can join the electronic Estonian choir via the Estonia 100 mobile app or on the website.”

As of today, anyone can join the global Estonian choir via the Estonia mobile app (ev100.ee/et/nutirakendus) or on the website www.EV100.ee (direct link here). The mobile app which helps the global choir come together was created by telecommunications company Telia Estonia as a centenary gift to the Republic of Estonia. 

The Estonia 100 sing-along will take place at the Tallinn Song Festival Grounds on August 19 with simultaneous sing-alongs in over 35 parishes and cities across Estonia. Community sing-alongs have been registered in 33 locations in 30 parishes as well as in the cities of Tartu, Sillamäe, Valga, Haapsalu, Viljandi, Paide and Rakvere. A regularly updated list of sing-along venues can be found on the Estonia 100 website subpage “Sing-along venues across Estonia” at ev100.ee/et/yheslaulmine.

The Estonia 100 sing-along “The Power of Song” and the concert to follow “The Buzz of the Century” are being organised by Nargenfestival and begin on August 19 at 7 p.m. Anyone anywhere in Estonia and abroad can take part via live broadcast.

In honour of the country’s centenary, the re-independence of the Republic of Estonia will be celebrated with a Grand Celebration Week which will bring Estonians and their friends together at large joint events.
