Pühapäeval lõppenud XII noorte laulu- ja tantsupidu oli laetud nooruspõlve julguse ja energeetikaga. Vabas Eestis sündinud põlvkond näitas kõige võimsamal viisil, et ta on valmis võtma ja säilitama sidet varem looduga ning kandma edasi väärtusi, mille loonud põlvkonnad enne neid.
The third performance, starting at 19.00 takes place as planned. Tickets will be bought back by Piletilevi or can be used as entrance to the Sundays Song Celebration.
