The aim of the Arvo Pärt Centre is to study and preserve the composer’s heritage in his homeland, Estonia, in an Estonian language environment. The building houses an exhibition area, a library, classrooms, a personal archive, a 140-seat auditorium, a video room and a cafe. The centre invites you to take part in educational tours, watch various films about the composer and to attend discussion evenings. This is also a venue for world class concerts and master classes; various options are provided for listening to the composer’s music, analysing it and gaining a more thorough understanding of it.
A special atmosphere for concerts and pensive enjoyment of music is provided by a chamber hall with a gorgeous view of the forest. The cosy library provides reading material on music, art and theology. An observation tower with a unique design will be opened in the spring of 2019.
