Concerts are a part of concert series „Church Holidays in the Land of Mary", that in addition to festive christmas concerts bring to the audience also monumental musical works around Easter-time. The patron of the „Church Holidays in the Land of Mary" is the president of the Estonian Council of Churches, Archbishop Emeritus Andres Põder. On Palm Sunday the audience will hear one of the most moving pieces of music history - St John Passion BWV 245 by Johann Sebastian Bachi (1685-1750), performed by Estonian top musicians and students from the Estonian Music and Theatre Academy.


This time both of the performances will take place outside of Tallin so that as many people as possible outside of the capital could hear them. The concert in Tartu St John's church is the last concert in the local traditional concert series „The Passion time Saturday concerts". Viljandi St John's church was consecrated in 1866 and celebrated recently its 150th birthday. It was built for an Estonian congregation and as a church for the local people became symbolic in the national awakening.
