The Chamber Choir KALEV

The Chamber Choir Kalev was founded in 1998 under the name of Chamber Choir Havera, so that a group of enthusiastic singers could enjoy themselves while performing music to high standards. Since autumn 2000, the choir is related to Estonian Confectionary Kalev, the best in Scandinavia in our minds, who is contributing to the choir. During that period many singers from other renowned active choirs and also capable choir voices broken back to singing-field from retirement have joined us. There are around forty of us in the choir sharing a true love of the choral art. The membership spans an age of 20-50.

Every season the choir performs at a number of concerts at major Tallinn venues and in churches around Estonia. A traditional Gala concert takes place annually. We also organize a couple of singing camps every season. Besides that also at least one trip to abroad.

From the International Festival in Llangollen, Wales we brought home the 3rd prize in the category of mixed choirs in 2001. From the singing competition “Kristalnaja Lira” of professional choirs in Gus Kristalnõi, Russia we returned with the laureate-worth diploma and matter-of-factly the 2nd place in 2002. In 2003 we obtained the 1st prize of the A-category from the national singing competition “Tuljak” in Tartu, Estonia and in 2005 we got the fourth place in 23rd Internacional Music Festival de Cantonigros in Spain. Concert tours have taken us to Great Britain, Russia, Latvia, Croatia, Finland, United States, Spain, Belarus, Ukraine and Moldova.

The choir music selection is from different periods of time and of various styles. Our repertoire consists of Estonian folk music, classical masterpieces, old music and contemporary pieces.

The conductor of the choir is Erki Meister. He has been conducting the choir since its foundation.
