Estonia: Eesti Kontsert asks concertgoers to wear masks to concerts in fall season

BC, Tallinn, 25.09.2020.Print version

Estonia's state-owned concert organizer Eesti Kontsert has requested concertgoers to wear masks to concerts during the autumn season, LETA/BNS informed. 

Eesti Kontsert, which is to kick off its autumn season with concerts in Tallinn, Johvi and Parnu is asking all concertgoers to wear masks indoors if possible and will hand out items of personal protective equipment also at concert venues, spokespeople said. 

"We care for our audience's health, and at the same time we wish that Estonia's cultural life wasn't defeated by the virus. If washing one's hands and wearing a mask are the easiest way to protect oneself and others from getting infected, they have to be done boldly. Our goal is to ensure the continuation of music life without a cultural interruption; with awareness and responsible behavior all of us can contribute to it," said the manager of Eesti Kontsert, Kertu Orro.

In addition to hand disinfecting stations, also face masks are available at the concerts organized by Eesti Kontsert. 

Eesti Kontsert is to kick off its autumn season with a stage performance "Ringlemisi," based on  music by Veljo Tormis, at the Estonia concert hall in Tallinn on Thursday. "Ringlemisi" will be performed at the Parnu concert hall on Friday and at Vanemuine concert hall in Tartu on Saturday.

At the concert hall of Johvi, a new version of Arvo Part's "La Sindone" will make its Estonian premiere on Thursday. The same work will be performed at the Estonia concert hall on Friday.
