Ehtne Eesti satiir, populaarsed näitlejad Egon Nuter ja Andrus Vaarik
Authentic Estonian Theater with popular actors Egon Nuter and Andrus Vaarik

Orav ja Meri

Nagu pealkirigi ütleb, mängivad näitlejad legendaarseid tegelasi Ivan Oravat ja Meri (Lennart Meri), kes sedapuhku kirjutuslauda pööningult alla veavad. See füüsiline töö käib aga korüfeedele ilmselt üle jõu ja nii nad sisustavadki aega kehakinnitamise, väikse napsi ja vaimuka vestlusega, mida eesti koomikute koorekihti kuuluvad Egon Nuter ja Andrus Vaarik laval säravalt esitavad.

Orav and Meri

This is an amusing story about the legendary Ivan Orav and Meri (Lennart Meri). The pair attempts to move a writing table down from the attic. Such an effort is too much for the codgers so they pause to eat, have a drink and engage in a witty conversation. Top Estonian comedians Egon Nuter and Andrus Vaarik are brilliant in their roles as these two historical figures. They have been playing these roles for years, but as there is room for improvisation every play is unique and special.

Lääneranniku Eesti Päevad 2011

We did it ! Together, we brought nearly 800 participants to LEP2011 to celebrate world- class Estonian music, folk dance, and many other aspects of our cultural heritage. That’s more than 200 over our goal! We worked hard during the festival, and all our events occurred with great success. The performances were awe-inspiring, and the participants returned home with wonderful memories.
We are grateful for the energy, enthusiasm, and dedication all of you brought as volunteers to LEP2011. Thank you for the generous donation of your time and efforts !
By all of our volunteer efforts, we set a wonderful example for LEP 2013, and demonstrated the power of individuals working together to create a remarkable festival.
Leo Rosten, noted academic and humorist, wrote “The purpose of life is not to be happy – but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make some difference that you have lived at all.” We are fortunate to belong to a community that places great value on volunteerism. Our combined efforts to en- hance Estonian cultural life in our community have made a difference in all of our lives.
Thank you very much for your tremendous help with organizing our great celebration of Estonian culture and ethnicity in Portland !

Ühtelaulmine Portlandis

Thursday, August 19, 2010

Reedel, 20.augustil tähistab Eesti iseseisvumise taastamise 19 aastapäevaÜhtelaulmise” üritusega.
See toimub samaaegselt üle Eesti 20.augustil kell 20:00.

Esitame 8 tuntud eesti koorilaulu (vaata all olevat nimekirja).
Kõik lauljad olenemata oskustest on kutsutud! Rahvariiete kandmine pole oluline.

This Friday, on the 20th of August, all interested singers of Estonian choral music are encouraged to meet at the Shakespearean section of the Portland Rose Garden at Washington Park. We will gather at 7:30 PM and starting singing by 7:45 PM.
8 well known choral pieces will be performed. All singers, regardless of ability, are invited.
Since this is a mass-sing-a-long, folk costumes are optional. We will have Estonian flags at the event.

On this day, Estonia will celebrate its 19th year of the restoration of independence with a global choral event named “Ühtelaulmine”, or in English, “Singing in Unison”. Choirs will congregate in hundreds of locations throughout Estonia to sing 8 well-known and heartfelt choral songs. Everyone is encouraged to participate, regardless of their singing abilities.

This invitation to sing is extended throughout the globe.

The music selected by Estonia for this global event is as follows:

REPERTUAARIS ON:

1. R. Eespere „Ärkamise aeg“
2. R. Kull „Kodumaa“ (Kas tunned maad)
3. Ü. Vinter „Laul Põhjamaast“
4. P. Sarapik „Ta lendab mesipuu poole“
5. M. Härma „Tuljak“
6. V. Tormis „Ühtelaulmine“
7. F. Saebelmann „Sind Surmani“
8. K. A.Herman „Kaunimad laulud“

(Kungla Rahvas may replace one of the above selections, as necessary)

Kui võimalik võtke kaasa oma noodid. Mõned koopiad on võimalik saada ka kohapealt, kuid me pole kindlad kui palju on osalejaid.

If possible, please bring your own music to sing from. Some copies will be available, but we have no idea how many singers will participate in this event. We hope to have enough music for everyone who wishes to sing.

If you have any questions, please call me at 503-260-4739!
