Global Fest: Global Choir and The Big Sing 

The Big Sing is a free community singing event open to all ages and areas of our community.

Come and join in an uplifting singing experience spontaneously led by Merzi Rajala and Global Choir through rhythmic choir conducting techniques. No previous singing experience needed.

This multicultural choir performs music based on vocal techniques, melodies and rhythmic traditions from around the world, presented by a diverse range of Sibelius Academy students from different departments. 

Together with Global Choir and guest groups, the conducting students from Global Choir Leadership will invite everybody to join and sing and fill the hall with sound and joy.
