This year’s Pärnu Music Festival will be going ahead as planned from 16 – 23 July with a re-imagined programme, a focus on both young and established Estonian talent, a celebration of Estonian composer Lepo Sumera and the world premiere of a new work by Tonu Korvits.

« I am ecstatic that we will be able to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our festival in Pärnu » says Paavo Järvi. « Even though the musical celebrations will be smaller than originally planned, the spirit of Pärnu will compensate one hundred fold and I cannot wait to return to one of my favourite places to be reunited with so many friends on stage. »

Complete details of the new programme will be made public shortly.
