Olympic Casino sponsors Estonian Academy of Music

Posted on 22.11.2005

A cheque for 50,115 Estonian kroons (equivalent of €3,200) was handed over to the Estonian Academy of Music during the charity session at the birthday party of Olympic Casino last Friday. The donation will support the concert series From Viennese Classics to Contemporary Music launched last year.
The concert series From Viennese Classics to Contemporary Music, dedicated to Viennese music, has been initiated to bring to life the exclusive Bösendorfer piano. Students of the Academy are performing most beautiful pieces of Viennese music on it. “Thanks to the support of Olympic Casino we will be able to continue with the concerts, the first performance will be in the Chamber Hall of the Estonian Academy of Music on January 16th ,” said Lassmann.

The Austrian-made Bösendorfer piano was purchased for the Estonian Academy of Music last autumn. One third of the price of the approximately one-million-kroon piano came from Olympic Casino.

Olympic Casino’s birthday party on Friday was named Stars throughout Ages, and the Academy of Music was chosen to be awarded the charity jackpot so that the delightful concert series of Viennese music could also continue next year. “The theme of our birthday party relates only too well to the donation as we hope to see many a future stars being educated at the Estonian Academy of Music today,” was the comment of Marje Braunbrück, marketing manager of Olympic Entertainment Group. The charity jackpot amounted to 50,115 kroons by Friday midnight, and Olympic Casino’s donation cheque was handed over to Peep Lassmann, the Rector of the Estonian Academy of Music by Marje Braunbrück.

In addition to supporting the Academy of Music, Dave Benton’s new record Generations was also being introduced during the birthday party at Park Casino, and the guests had fun with games and competitions organised by the lovely entertainer Merle Palmiste.
