Tallinn Children’s Choir, the predecessor of THK Kullo Girl’s Choir Ellerhein, was created in 1951. Since 1970, the choir was renamed Ellerhein in 1969, on the 100th anniversary of the Estonian Song Festivals. Apart from giving concerts, all singers receive training in vocal, solfeggio, and harmony classes. The choir uses the relative Kodaly system when learning new repertoire. From 2012 the conductor is Ingrid Kõrvits. The choir’s repertoire consists of both classical and contemporary choral music by outstanding composers from all over the world. In 2004 the choir was given a Grammy award for best choir music performance for their album “Jean Sibelius: Cantatas”. They have received numerous awards, including three Grand Prix prizes at Kathaumixw 2008 in Canada, Tallinn 2009 in Estonia and Seghizzi 2014 in Italy.

Early music consort Hortus Musicus was founded by its artistic director and conductor Andres Mustonen in 1972. Hortus Musicus is the oldest continuously working ensemble in its field in Eastern Europe and one of the few of such longevity in the world. Hortus Musicus’ repertoire includes music from the 8th–20th century. Many contemporary composers have written pieces for the ensemble, such as Alexander Knaifel, Arvo Pärt, Galina Grigorjeva, Lepo Sumera and others. Hortus Musicus has recorded more than 30 CDs for Warner Classics, Melodiya, Forte, Antes and others.

Tallinn Song Festival Grounds feature an outdoor concert arena built in 1959, a number of indoor halls and host a multitude of large concerts and festivals throughout the year. Most famously the site is home to the Estonian Song and Dance Celebration, an unforgettable event that takes place every five years, drawing together up to 34,000 performers and 200,000 spectators. It was here in 1988 that Estonia’s massive, musical demonstration against Soviet rule set the nation on its road towards regaining its independence. The Glass Hall on the second floor is a duplex hall – the main hall of the Song Festival Grounds. It is very spacious, light and has a beautiful view.
