The Pärnu Music Festival and Järvi Academy were founded by Paavo Järvi in 2011 together with his father, Neeme, and its family atmosphere envelopes the visiting musicians, students and audience to create a unique summer refuge on the Estonian coast. Now in its ninth year the 2019 festival runs from 15 – 21 July and features two concerts with the internationally acclaimed Estonian Festival Orchestra. Programme details will be unveiled shortly.
