History & Mission:

The Tallinn Bach Music Festival has grown from the series of daily organ concerts which are held during the 1st week of January in the Tallinn Niguliste museum (Church of St. Nicholas). The festival has become a tradition and an original, warm and beautiful New Year's greeting of Tallinn to all the inhabitants and visitors of our capital.
