25th Rapla Church Music Festival

Rapla Church Music Festival takes place from June 28 to July 9, 2017, in the churches of Rapla county.

The festival was established in 1993 in collaboration with Finnish church musicians with the objective of introducing the world's plentiful music heritage to the audience.

Over the years, numerous works belonging to the gold pool of classical music and several large forms have been performed. In 1997, the festival left the walls of Rapla's Mary-Magdalene Church and it has now reached other Estonian towns and counties. Professional music has sounded in small village churches of Rapla county, Tallinn and Haapsalu, and chamber concerts have also taken place in the beautiful manor houses of Estonia

A large part of Estonia's musical elite and guest performers from Sweden to Japan will take to the stage at the festival. Since 2010, the festival has also hosted the international Rapla summer school, where masterclasses for singers, string and wind instruments as well as conductors have been offered.

The artistic director of the festival is the opera singer and the creator of the self-titled musicians' fund Pille Lill. The festival is organised by PLMF.
