The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir (EPCC) is one of the best-known Estonian music ensembles in the world. The EPCC was founded in 1981 by Tõnu Kaljuste, who was the artistic director and chief conductor for twenty years. Afterwards Paul Hillier (2001–2007) and Daniel Reuss (2008–2013) took over. Since 2014 Kaspars Putniņš has been the artistic director and chief conductor of the choir.

The repertoire of the choir extends from Gregorian chant and baroque to the music of the 21st century, with a special focus on the work of Estonian composers, such as Arvo Pärt, Veljo Tormis, Erkki-Sven Tüür, Galina Grigoryeva, Toivo Tulev, Tõnu Kõrvits, Helena Tulve. Each season the choir gives about 60–70 concerts both in Estonia and abroad.
