The Sonorous Sounds of the Organs of Saaremaa 2016
5th – 9th of July
Estonian islands are mystical places, full of interesting creatures. For example, on the Saaremaa island, there is said to live a huge being, called Suur Tõll. But no one has seen him for a long time, so maybe he has gone abroad with a work and study visa or something. Now there is a classical music festival held there, that includes five concerts in in five medieval churches. Might just be that these sounds will help call Suur Tõll back home. Lets hope so.
