The internationally famous Estonian TV Girls’ Choir is successful both in Estonia and abroad. The choir grew out of the Children’s Television Music Studio, which was founded in 1990. Today the choir has a total of 30 singers aged between 15 and 25. Its repertoire includes spiritual and secular music from various eras, folk music and a modern programme featuring pop and jazz.
The choir has collaborated with Estonian composers Arvo Pärt, Veljo Tormis, Urmas Sisask and Tõnis Mägi. As well as concert tours, the girls have appeared at a number of international conferences, symposiums and festivals, including La Fabbrica del Canto in Italy, Polyfollia in France and Sympaatti in Finland.
In 2001, the Estonian TV Girls’ Choir performed successfully in an international competition of choral music in Gorizia, winning the title of best female choir and best choir in all categories. The girls also participated in the 2002 Eurovision Song Contest in Tallinn.
