XIII Tallinn Winter Festival

XIII TALLINN WINTER FESTIVAL “Open your eyes, open your heart”

The festival brings some light to the dark month of February and awaits an audience to St. Charles' and Swedish St. Michael's Church as well as Hopner House and Tallinn Town Hall!

We will delight city residents and guests with an opening concert with traditionally free entrance at the Swedish St. Michael’s Church and we will host foreign performers from Hungary, Italy, China and Russia.
We will commemorate beloved maestro Eri Klas and honour Ludwig van Beethoven's 250th birthday. 
On 22nd of February we will celebrate the birthday of the Republic of Estonia at Tallinn St. Charles' Church with a grandiose concert "GOD SAVE ESTONIA". 
We will present young opera singerswinners of international competitions for the first time and alongside the festival, we will organise master classes in the context of the youth program.  
Since 2006, the festival has taken a notice of the people in need in our society and for this reason we have created the 
good deed initiative with the motto 
"OPEN YOUR EYES, OPEN YOUR HEART"
 
 
In 2020, we will support SOS Children’s Village as a part of the campaign. 
PLMF will donate 25% of the festival revenue to support the fund and 
we also invite you, good people, to donate:
NPO Training Centre for Practising Musicians, EE037700771003227591, LHV Bank, with the keyword “Open your eyes, open your heart”.
 
In previous years, we have collected funds as a part of “Open your eyes, open your heart” for the Käo center for children with disabilities for schooling music therapists and buying musical instruments, NGO Nirk to cover daily driving costs, the children of Saaremaa to buy musical instruments and Estonia’s top performers to purchase quality instruments. We have supported Tallinn and Harju County’s Union of Large Families with the purchase of a van for transporting food and Old Town Music School to enable more children with special needs than until now to receive music education with the help of support persons.
