"Aktus" The traditional brief ceremony or formality of Suvehari will begin at 3:00 pm with the remembrance of our honoured War Veterans. The program has been shortened but will contain the essentials.
The lighting of the torch has symbolized our freedom for over 50 years and it is a fundamental right that we should never take for granted. Everyone should plan to attend this event as a central part of their afternoon at Seedrioru.
The guest Estonian choir "Helin" directed by Margit Viia Maiste. will provide the music
The guest speaker is Tõnu Tõsine.
Starting at 8:00pm will be a live performance Öömäng performed by: Rosemarie Lindau, Indrek Kalda, Margus Kappel, Peeter Kopvillem and Riho Sibul on the "Vabaõhu Teatri Lava." or outdoor stage. This is a lively and entertaining show that is always presented with lots of humour and song. So bring your blanket and beverage and enjoy a relaxing wind down. Plan to spend this time sitting on the grassy slopes of Seedrioru facing a scenic, open amphitheatre and take in a bit of Estonian culture. This one-hour production should definitely be part of your evening and will finish well before the band begins to warm up for the night.
Evening Entertainment will get everyone into a great mood. The main stage(on top of the hill ) attraction will be an all-star team of legendary proportions from Estonia and Canada:
Indrek Kalda (Kukerpillid Lindprii - Tallinn)
Margus Kappel (Rock Hotel, Ruja - Tallinn)
Peeter Kopvillem (Toronto)
Riho Sibul (Ultima Thule - Tallinn)
Eric Soostar (Toronto)
and others, followed by Wally Mätas, The Big Chill to keep you dancing till you drop.
Wrist bands are back and steps have been taken to control and hopefully mitigate the unfortunate party crashers that can overshadow all the good
fun, good music and new friendships that happen at this annual event.
Please do your part to be part of the solution not part of the problem...thanks.
