The sheer number of refugees is overwhelming the resources of 1.3 million Estonians, as refugees are approaching 2% of the population. Fundraising is necessary to support Estonia as it struggles to support both the military in Ukraine and the refugees.
In Estonia, hope and resistance have always been linked with music, so this concert will feature some of Estonia’s best young musicians, singers, musical ensembles and the Baltic Sea Philharmonic project orchestra conducted by Kristjan Järvi. The concert also features finalists from Estonia Searching for Superstars, a new song for Ukraine entitled the Nightingale’s Child by Kristjan Järvi and Ruslan Trochynskyi, and some surprise performances.
The performers represent several different genres, with both new and familiar tunes. One of the young performers is 18-year-old Ingmar Kiviloo, who initiated The World We Inherit concert and was one of the finalists in “Estonia Searching for Superstars”. He is a member of Võlukeeled, which has performed in Toronto and is a violin virtuoso.
Musicians, who are well known in Estonia like Maarja Liis Ilus Jakob Tuisk, Uku Suviste, Getter Jaani are featured in the show. Together with newcomers like Stefan, who has an Armenian background and lives in Estonia and who will represent Estonia at Eurovision in2022 with his song “Hope”. The Bänd directed by Siim Aimla are included. Estonian school children from around the world will send their greetings, as well as the Toronto Estonian Supplementary School. Estonian children’s choirs directed by Veronica Portsmuth and Kadri Hunt will sing both new and familiar songs.
