Collegium Musicale is the most famous Estonian musical export. The choir, established by young conductor Endrik Üksvärav in October 2010, has been winning the hearts of audiences and gaining awards all over the world.
The choir's repertoire is wide and ranges from Renaissance songs to contemporary music. Three artists have a special place in the ensemble: neoclassicist Arvo Pärt, one of the greatest choral composers Veljo Tormis, and Erkii-Sven Tüür who is connected with the rock scene. Collegium Musicale are true ambassadors of Estonian music.
The choir cooperates with orchestras and ensembles from all around the world, not only from their home town, Tallin. It has performed for audiences in Italy, France, Germany, Malta and Japan. The Estonian Choral Association awarded Collegium Musicale the Choir of the Year twice, in 2011 and 2014. Their album ‘Peegel peeglis’, which includes Arvo Pärt's compositions, received an award for the best album with choral music in Estonia in 2012.
