“The traditional Song Festival held in Tallinn draws an average of 30,000 singers and musicians from the best choirs in the republic. It should be added that the open-air stage at the Song festival Grounds, a unique structure built in 1960 after the design elaborated by Estonian architects, is large enough for such an enormous choir, many thousands strong, to perform on it.”
