In September we started a series of live-stream concerts to celebrate a landmark in the Estonian diaspora history here in Toronto with Kaili Kinnon. Tartu College has been a hub for Estonian academic and cultural life for 50 years. As a home for the Estonian academic organizations, Museum of Estonians Abroad, Estonian Life newspaper, the archives, library - we are acknowledging the people who built Tartu and have kept it successfully running for half a century.
Estonians are a singing nation so naturally we find music the best way to celebrate. We hope you can all join us from the comfort of your homes!
Throughout the fall, our online concert series will take you on a musical journey to different parts of Tartu College building that has many stories to tell.
