ETAM is an Estonian amateur male choir operating in Tallinn, Estonia. Our goal is to maintain Estonian male singing culture. In 2018 we celebrated our 60th anniversary of action. In the repertoire dominates Estonian choral music, though various international compositions are often presented. The traditional concerts and events of the choir are spring concerts and Christmas concerts. We always take part of the Estonian Song Festivals, which are held every 5th year and where over 32 thousand singers participate. The choir’s last achievements were 3rd place on Estonan male singing contest, and a first place in Bulgarian choir festival in Balchik, both held in 2018. Our conductors are both professional choir-masters and singers of Estonian National Male Choir (RAM). Currently, there are about 40 active singers in the concert choir.
