Charity Concert Series „ESTONIAN MANORS 2017’’
19 years of manor music and patronage in the 800-year-old Land of Mary!
Let's support together the Hummuli Manor School!
The charity concert series “Estonian Manors” is the crown jewel of the agency Corelli Music. It’s a unique cultural phenomenon that brings together the romantic experience of visiting manors, architectural treasures and beautiful music from the golden ages combined with patronage. Baroque ensemble Corelli Consort is celebrating its 25th jubileum and is performing radiant baroque music on period instruments, as it could have sounded in ballrooms of manors in ancient times. The history and architecture of the manors will be introduced by art historian Jüri Kuuskemaa. Since 2017 is the year of children and youth then 3 of the manors are manor schools and patronage can support the development of creativity of the children from Hummuli Manor School.

The idea behind the programme of this summer was a desire to perform baroque arias that used to be sung by men – countertenors, but this time they will be sung by a young radiant mezzo-soprano. In addition to that the audience can enjoy beautiful pieces by timeless and great baroque masters for violin, cello and harpsichord.
In its 19th year since 1999, the yearly and successful concert series “Estonian Manors” has introduced 75 manors all over Estonia. As an additional value everyone has a possibility to join the prestigious patronage of Corelli Music. The concert series has every year supported a little manor school, an orphanage, a nursing home for elderly people, the Maarja Village Foundation and Childrens Clinic Foundation. This summer, the donations of audience and patrons will be given to the Hummuli Manor School in order to help the school develop children’s creativity. They wish to furnish a special reading nook for the afterschool children and purchase big developing board games that can be played outside and with many people together. Games make children wise!
Ticket sales start an hour before the concerts and there are cosy cafés in all the manors. To support the Hummuli manor school money collecting boxes are available and charity sales will be held. Acting together can help make small deeds into big ones!
