The musicians will perform works by Heino Eller and Arvo Pärt.

In honour of International Music Day, the Estonian Music Council has organised a free concert programme every year since 2013, which features live music throughout Estonia during the course of one day. The concert programme calls to notice the role and importance of music in our everyday lives. On that day, there will be music in traditional concert halls and in unexpected locations.
Last year, more than 200 free short concerts were held across Estonia on International Music Day.
