In August 2011 the former children’s and young children’s choirs of Estonian Television were joined to form a united Concert Choir. The newly established Concert Choir has 35 members aged between 11 and 15.

The choir’s repertoire includes Estonian choral works and those from all around the world, and folk and pop music arrangements as well. Most of the choir’s programme is complemented by zestful choreography (choreographer Regina Rebane). The choir also has its own violin group and folk orchestra.

The choir has performed most recent works of several Estonian composers (eg. Piret Rips, Rein Rannap, Priit Pajusaar, Tauno Aints etc.), performed together with the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra, Estonian National Youth Symphony Orchestra, XXI Century Orchestra, Tallinn Chamber Orchestra, string quartet Prezioso, Estonian National Male Choir and the Vienna Boys’ Choir etc.

Both the young children’s and the children’s choir have won several competitions in their respective categories both in Estonia and abroad:

  • 2003 and 2008 festival competition of Estonian Young Children’s Choirs;
  • 2006 International Children’s and Youth Choir Festival „Hong Kong 2006“;
  • 2008 Gold Medal and 1st Prize (with a score of a maximum 100 points) at the 36th International Choir Competition „Festival of Songs Olomouc” (Czech Republic);
  • 2010 CHAMPION OF THE WORLD CHOIR GAMES 2010 in Shaoxing, China;
  • 2012  festival competition of Estonian Children’s Choirs;
