Chimes and handbells (Lower foyer)
Listen to the unique sound of a handbell choir and join us to play and sing! The handbell workshop in the lower foyer is intended for everyone.

So So Sibelius! (Black Box)
So So Sibelius! is an event for singing and making music together, based on familiar themes from works by Sibelius – but far from serious!

Jazz concert: Adventures of Myky the Cat at the birthplace of jazz in America (Rehearsal hall Paavo)
Myky the Cat grew up watching how the blues moggies, ragtime tomcats and marching felines of New Orleans all came together in a bar and discovered a common swing. Soon all the cats in the neighbourhood were singing and dancing to the new music, jazz. Children attending the concert will be able to join in making music. The concert is intended for everyone, although we recommend that the youngest children be accompanied by their parents.
Performers:
Josefiina Vannesluoma, vocals
Riikka Keränen, vocals
Tomi Nikku, trumpet
Mikael Myrskog, piano
Eero Seppä, bass
Sami Nummela, drums

Dr. Co-Brass (Camerata)
Dr. Co-Brass is a duo made up of Tero Toivonen, who has a D.Mus. degree in audience outreach, and multitalented music educator Maiju Kopra. They present the entire history of brass music in a concise and funny package that takes brass instruments from the past to the present and into the future.

Musical bedtime story: The Mountain that Loved the Bird (Organo)
This story is about the power of friendship: how little things can come together to bring about a life-changing event, and how someone cares enough to make an effort on behalf of another. The story reminds us of joy, love and other emotions. Principally intended for children aged 7 to 12, the story is equally enjoyable for adults.
