VocalEssence -  Finlandia Forever Concerts

Concerts at 4pm and 7pm

A special highlight as part of the Finn Fest USA 2017: Final Celebration and Family Day at the American Swedish Institute  - which begins at noon on Sunday, September 24 - will be two all-Finnish Finlandia Forever choral music concerts at 4 and 7 p.m., featuring the VocalEssence Singers with some very special guests.

  • VocalEssence Ensemble Singers
  • Osmo Vänskä, clarinet
  • Sara Pajunen, fiddle

While the land of the midnight sun has long been known for refreshingly bright ideas—from saunas to cell phones—its musical contributions are equally innovative. Favorite Finns Osmo Vänskä and Sara Pajunen will help us celebrate 100 years of Finnish independence, performing music of Sibelius, Rautavaara, Mäntyjärvi, Saariaho, and others. Catch “Finn Fever” and join in with a chorus of Sibelius’s Finlandia. Presented in partnership with VocalEssence and national FinnFest USA.

Concert tickets are $40. To purchase, visit Vocal Essence online.
