Have you ever worried about what direction the world is going to? Have you ever felt desperate because you would like to see a change? Are you worried about the state of the Earth, global warming, natural disasters, wars, and crisis between nations? Do you see how isolation between people creates misunderstanding and mental issues?

We need each other. We need our planet. We need to have peace between us and support life on Earth. We need to take care and responsibility for our actions. We are all part of the nature and capable of living sustainably.

”Peace of wild things” is a musical call for action. It is a manifest towards international peace, mental health work and nature conservation. It is a collective moment of listening, sharing, and connecting. It is a reminder to rest, to love and not to give up.

The performance is the final concert of Iiris Tarnanen’s Global Music master’s degree studies. Originating from Finland, Tarnanen combines in this concert her skills as a cellist, singer and composer.

Mannerheimintie renovation project

Access to the Musiikkitalo from the direction of Mannerheimintie will be difficult. We recommend that you allow enough time for your arrival and use the entrance on the side of Kansalaistori if possible. According to current information, the entrance to Mannerheimintie will also remain in use throughout the renovation, but pedestrian routes can be challenging at times.

We recommend following the official information channels of the renovation project, where you can find the most up-to-date information.
