Naantali Chamber Choir was founded in 1978. It is an amateur mixed choir of 30 singers (18 women, 12 men). The singers come from a relatively small area on the South-Western coast, around the city of Naantali. Antti Haapalainen, a composer and music theory teacher has conducted Naantali Chamber Choir from the year 2012. He is an encouraging conductor who also composes and arranges music for the choir.  The choir has performed various kinds of music; classical, traditional, contemporary, popular.  Choral music has led the choir round Europe: Estonia, Hungary, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, UK, the Czech Republic.  In 2000 the choir had a concert tour in Canada (the Finn Grand Fest in Toronto and concerts for the Finnish communities in Sudbury and Timmins). In Minnesota the choir will perform with 24 singers
