Concerts

The coronavirus has affected a number of summer festivals all over the world and we are very sad to announce that Suveuni piano festival is cancelled too.
Suveuni festival and Prof. Arbo Valdma master classes are scheduled for July 2021 (probably last 10 days in July).
At first, there was hope that things would return to normal by the summer. But now we now that no public events are to take place in Estonia in the months of May and June. Smaller public gatherings with a limited number of attendees might be possible in July and August, but only outdoors. We have no choice but to cancel festival in July 2020.
This has not been an easy decision to make, and we understand that these cancellations will come as hugely disappointing news to our participants and audience.
Take care, stay healthy and see you next summer!
