TALLINN - Tallinn, the UNESCO City of Music, is to celebrate the Estonian Independence Restoration Day with an open-air concert on 20th of August Square on Harjumagi Hill, which takes place at 2 p.m. on Sunday and is free to enter for everyone.

On the festive day, Mayor Mihhail Kolvart will greet his fellow Tallinners. He believes that freedom is the greatest treasure a nation can possess.

"But freedom has its price! To stay together as a nation and preserve our freedom, we must learn to listen better and consider each other. Distrust and misunderstanding only undermine freedom, but strength lies in unity," Kolvart said. "There's no better unifier of people than culture. As a UNESCO City of Music, Tallinn is once again filled with music -- let's listen and enjoy. I congratulate all the people of Estonia on the day of the country's re-independence!"

The concert will feature Estonian music performed by singers Liisi Koikson and Ott Lepland, as well as the Tallinn Police Orchestra.
