The Integration Foundation is once again organising the Singing Picnic in Narva on 20 August at 5 p.m. Let us spend some fun time together listening to the concert and singing and dancing along.
The Singing Picnic is organised by the Estonian Language House of the Integration Foundation in Narva. Similar to the singing festival organised in 2021, the purpose of the picnic is to bring together the people of Ida-Viru County, introduce the culture of Narva, and learn the Estonian language by singing together, and thus celebrate the anniversary of the Republic of Estonia.
The main performer at the picnic is the tandem choir of the Estonian Language House in Narva with both Estonian and Russian native speakers singing together. They will be performing with the Paldiski mixed choir. In addition, choirs, singers, and ensembles from Ida-Viru County and elsewhere will take the stage, as well as a surprise performer at the end of the evening.
When choosing the repertoire for the picnic, the creative team of the Estonian Language House preferred songs that are easy to sing along to or already familiar to the participants. In addition, the lyrics can be seen on a large screen. The songs will be sung in Estonian, Russian, Ukrainian, and Votic.
The Singing Picnic will take place on the slope of the castle in Joaorg. There will be a trampoline park and you will also have the opportunity to ride a boat and rent bicycles. Street food will also be sold.
Bring everything you need for a picnic: everything from food to a picnic blanket. Wear clothes suitable for the weather (in case of rain, we recommend bringing a raincoat).
Entrance at 4.30 p.m. The concert starts at 5 p.m. and lasts until 8 p.m. There is no need to buy a ticket – the event is free!
