EMW Launch on February 15, 2018


On Thursday, February 15, curious guests gathered in the Tartu College Hall to hear more about the upcoming Estonian Music Week (EMW).

Piret Noorhani, Festival Coordinator, welcomed the guests and introduced the EMW Team. Tom Treumuth, the Artistic Director for EMW, gave a sneak peek of the exciting Estonian artists that will be collaborating with soon to be announced Canadian artists. The audience also had the chance to hear about the upcoming 21C Festival at Koerner Hall, where one of the EMW concerts will be featured: Vox Clamantis feat. Maarja Nuut & HH. Heather Kelly, from the Bloor St. Culture Corridor (BCC), gave an overview of the all the participating organizations, also noting that most of the EMW concerts will be taking place across the BCC. As a special treat, one of the Canadian-Estonian EMW artists, Kaili Kinnon, gave a short haunting performance to give the audience a taste of what is to come in May. Guests had the opportunity to discuss the program for EMW over Estonian appetizers and kringle, of course.
