Rainmakers celebrates rain through sonic and visual art works. The project includes an exhibition and a participatory Rainmaking event. Applauding is an easy and natural way of making music together. The Helsinki Glove Orchestra (HGO) led by Tytti Arola performs her composition Sateentekijät (Vettä, räntää ja lunta). The performers of the HGO will use gloves and mittens as instruments and the audience is welcome to join in. Please bring your own gloves! In addition, the concert includes the premiere of a new piece.

Musicians of HGO in the event: Tytti Arola, þorkell Nordal, Lauri Supponen, Livia Schweizer and Viktor Toikkanen.
