Big Band Tartu met a lot of guest conductors and other big bands during all the years of activity, with whom we continued to communicate. So we know our sommon interests, wish to lissen and share eachothers music and ideas, like to meet and study something new. Thatfor we organize 7th International Happy Big Band Weekend 24th of July 2021 in Tartu, Estonia.
Star of this weekend will be Mr. Renars Lacis - conductor, saxophonist and teacher from Latvia, who will take with him his orchestra Ventspils Big Band. Of course we waited here much more foreign guests, but the covid-situation didn't allow others to come.
From our Estonian friends will participate TalTech Big Band, conductor Kristina Bianca Rantala, Big Band of Defence League of Tallinn, conductor Peeter Saan and Youth Big Band "Livland" of South-Estonia, conductor Anton Kogan.
From local forces will help us Tartu Sax Choir and Big Band Tartu as organizer, who has the pleasure and honour to perform with Mr. Uku Suviste, who represented our country this Spring in Eurovison Song Contest.
