The last application round of “An Instrument for Every Child” was openedPublished: 01.02.2018

Today, on 1 February, the last application round of the initiative “An Instrument for Every Child” for the centenary of the Republic of Estonia was opened. Applications can be submitted until 20 March. Within three years, more than 1,700 instruments have been gifted to 325 educational institutions across Estonia as part of this project.

“The events of the Estonia 100 music programme prove that high-quality music is being made in Estonia. The initiative “An Instrument for Every Child” helps ensure that Estonian music will continue to thrive in both Estonia and abroad,” Jaanus Rohumaa, Head of the Organising Committee of Estonia 100 said.

“This year’s application round coincides with the jubilee year and is also the last application round, which is why we expect a very large number of applicants,” said Allan Tamme, project manager of “An Instrument for Every Child”. “Thanks to the application rounds, all of the supporters, and the new instruments, a lot has already been achieved. For example, the new Mulgimaa Youth Orchestra, which gained momentum thanks to the Hooandja platform, will be giving their first concert on 3 February at the Karksi Rural Municipality Cultural Centre,” Tamme was pleased to convey.

The 2018 application round of “An Instrument for Every Child” is open from 1 February to 20 March (included). Information about the 2018 application round is available at www.ev100.ee/et/igal-lapsel-oma-pill.

In 2015–2017, the initiative “An Instrument for Every Child” allocated a total of 1,222,136 euros for purchasing instruments, which has helped 325 educational institutions across Estonia acquire more than 1,700 new musical instruments. Donations are still being accepted on the special site of the Hooandja platform at www.pill.hooandja.ee or on the phone number 900 5505.

The initiators of the joint gift “An Instrument for Every Child” for the centenary of the Republic of Estonia are the Estonian Music Schools Union, the Estonian Wind Music Society, the Estonian Traditional Music Centre, the Estonian Rhythmic Music Education Union, the Estonian Symphony Orchestras Association, and the Organising Committee of Estonia 100 of the Government Office of Estonia.
