ETV Girls' Choir

Estonian Television girls’ choir grew out from the children’s singing studio which was founded for the ETV children’s shows department. The singing studio’s founder and musical leader from 1990 to 2004 was the conductor Aarne Saluveer. Today there are twenty-nine girls aged from 14 to 20 singing in the girls’ choir, out of whom most have a musical background and a prior experience in singing in choirs.

The choir’s repertoire consists of spiritual and secular music from different eras, folk music compositions with striking choreography, modern pop and jazz music and vocal-symphonic masterpieces. A large part of the choirs’ repertoire consists of music by Veljo Tormis.

ETV girls’ choir has worked together with many famous Estonian composers such as Arvo Pärt, Veljo Tormis, Urmas Sisask and Tõnu Kõrvits. Conducted by Aarne Saluveer, A. Pärt’s composition “Peace Upon You, Jerusalem” was performed as a premiere in New York, and in 2010 during the Nargen festival the composer’s 3rd symphony “Meie aed” was performed as a celebration of the his birthday. The choir has performed together with numerous of choirs and orchestras from all over the world, and conductors including Neeme Järvi, Eri Klas, Andres Mustonen, Eric Whitacre and Paul Hillier.
