Song festival The songs of Midsummer Eve / Student Festival Gaudeamus 2018

Tartu Lauluväljak
The Songs of Midsummer, the concert and song festival of Gaudeamus, follows the mystery of the solstice through a thousand years

The song festival and concert performance The Songs of Midsummer, which is one of the main events of Gaudeamus, will take place on 24 June at 4 p.m. at Tartu Festival Arena, following the central subjects of the traditions of Midsummer Day, and youth through different eras.

Every generation experiences youth for the first time. Youth has a special meaning during the solstice night when nature is blossoming and flourishing at its peak. Whether we admit it or not, our hearts and souls are intertwined with nature. The brightest time of the year is the best moment let yourself loose, to cheer, yell, sing, go crazy and dance, and do it all with thousands of soulmates!

The best student choirs and orchestras in the Baltics will perform in the song festival, playing a lively Midsummer Day themed repertoire.

For the first time in the history of Gaudeamus, the song festival is integrated with performance art. Indrek Hargla, the well-known writer, and Ain Mäeots, the popular stage director, have created five short performances that carry the audience through a thousand years and imaginary solstice nights on this land.

Centuries may come and go, but love and passion know no boundaries of time or space, and on the shortest night of the year, young people who were born a thousand years apart on the Kronos scale can meet each other – it makes no difference on the Kairos scale.

Gaudeamus, which is part of the Estonia 100 celebrations, incorporates lighting design, music, choral singing and dance into one very special spectacle, the like of which has never been organised in Tartu before. The program is built on the theme of summer solstice, following the Midsummer Day traditions of the three Baltic States from ancient times to today.
