FA Schola Center for Early European and Oriental Music
by the University of Tartu is founded in collaboration between the University of Tartu and Festivitas Artium in January 2000. FA Schola Center's aim is to research an compare early European and Asian cultures through music. The Center works under the auspicies of Tartu Student's House and is located on the ground floor of the Tartu Universtiy main building, room nr. 031.
As a Greek loan word in Latin, schola's original meaning was "psending time in intelligent conversation". Later the more familiar meanings of 'teaching' and 'scholarly' were conflated with it. FA Schola Center unites both the old and the more reacent meaning: in addition to teaching, the centre organises concert projects where students of music are given an opportunity to play and perform together with professional musicians.
