Due to the health risks and recommended precautions related to the global outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19), public concerts and events organized by the Estonian Academy of Music and Theater (EAMT) will not take place from 13th of March to 30th of April.

Based on the recommendations of the Government of the Republic of Estonia as well as the Health Board and taking into consideration the potential risks, the management of EAMT has decided to cancel the events organized by the Academy.

“It is obvious that organizing events with large crowds and international elements is currently considered as complicated and unsafe for the public, staff and performers alike. We certainly want to prevent the situation from escalating, and we prioritize everyone’s security as our first concern,” comments Henry-David Varema, Vice-Rector for Creative Affairs and International Relations at the EAMT.

If deemed possible, events will be not cancelled but rather postponed to the second half of the year. Currently no decisions have been made yet, but in order to stay informed about the events, please follow emtasaalid.ee for further information.

These are temporary measures. The Estonian Academy of Music and Theater follows the recommendations of the Health Board and national regulations and assesses the situation on an ongoing basis.
