Musica nova Helsinki: Soiva kieli vo­cal mu­sic se­ries: The Six Senses

Soiva kieli vocal music series: 21st century songs for International Women’s Day

This programme, part of the Musica nova Helsinki festival, coincides with International Women’s Day, and we are presenting a recital of 21st century songs by women composers. The theme of this year’s Musica Nova festival is ‘Sensations’ and we are diving into the world of the human senses – not only the five senses of sound, touch, taste, smell and sight, but also our sense of time – our understanding and perception of the present, the past (memory) and the future (dreams), and how we experience the passage of time.

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.
