Ulla Krigul is one of the most recognized organists of the younger generation in Estonia. She is highly valued as a soloist and an ensemble partner. Her repertoire comprises wide range of music from Baroque to contemporary music. In 2004–2006, Ulla Krigul worked as the organist of Sacré Coeur Church in Vienna. At the present time, she works as a lecturer at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre and the organist of Finnish St. Peter’s Congregation in Tallinn. As a soloist and chamber musician Ulla Krigul has performed in all main Estonian churches and has held concerts in the frameworks of many festivals and concert series. https://www.emic.ee/ulla-krigul

Tammo Sumera is the lecturer in the electronic music studio and the sound technology specialist at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre. He is also a freelance live electronics artist and sound engineer. Sumera has been awarded live electronics interpretation, engineering, and organisational awards at numerous international festivals around Europe. He has collaborated with various Estonian orchestras, conductors, performers, and composers.  

St. Nicholas’ museum/concert hall serves without a doubt as sacred space for music and music and art lovers, although there has not been an inaugurated altar nor an active congregation for decades. The divine acoustic between the arches of St. Nicholas’ Church and priceless pieces of sacred art completely do the trick: besides the initial fragment of Danse Macabre by Bernt Notke, the retable of the high altar in St. Nicholas’ Church is one of the grandest and best-preserved northern German altars from the Late Middle Ages. It is no coincidence that ECM has recorded a decent amount of music by Arvo Pärt at St. Nicholas’.

St. Nicholas’ Church was one of the two parish churches in medieval Tallinn and one of the wealthiest churches in the town. Consecrated to the patron saint of merchants and seafarers, St. Nicholas, it is believed to have been founded in the middle of the 13th century. The building survived the Reformation looting of 1523 but wasn’t so lucky in the 20th century when it was destroyed by World War II bombs. Since its restoration in the 1980s, St. Nicholas’ has functioned as a museum specialising in works of religious art. Its sacral art exhibition is the largest medieval and early modern ecclesiastical art collection in Estonia.
