Cathedral Choristers set off on Music Tour of Estonia.

17 boy choristers from Ely Cathedral’s highly regarded choir will perform a series of choral music concerts in Estonia. This is the Choir’s first ever visit to Estonia and includes a very busy schedule of five performances in venues across a number of cities including Tallinn, Haapsalu and Parnu. The tour will culminate in a concert at St Peter & St Paul Cathedral in Tallinn.

Many of the boys, all aged between 9 – 13, have never been on tour before but most are very used to performing in some particularly awe inspiring venues.  Previous Choir tours have included America, Canada, Spain, Norway and France as well as special performances in Rome, Vienna & Budapest.

Despite the rather gruelling schedule of rehearsals and performances, there is some time scheduled in for the choir to experience their surroundings with visits scheduled to a museum and water park.

Paul Trepte, Director of Music at Ely Cathedral is accompanying the Choir. “English choral music is highly regarded across the world and these tours enable us to bring choral music concerts to a global audience. It also gives the boys a great opportunity to perform in unusual venues and to spend some quality time together after a very busy and highly successful year”.
