Saturday, November 18, 2017 - 16:00
National Museum
Tickets: 7-10€
The recitals form part of the celebrations for the centenary of Finland’s independence (Suomi 100).

Sibelius Academy students and teachers perform Finnish solo songs that are about darkness and melancholy. What emotions are prompted by tranquillity, loneliness and silence?

In four recitals entitled ‘Finnish songbook’, students and teachers of the Sibelius Academy perform solo songs that are quintessentially Finnish. The recitals explore various styles, moods and genres, mixing and matching old and new. The ‘Finnish songbook’ recitals give a voice to minorities and acknowledge their contribution to the building of Finland.

Entry to the National Museum with the museums entrance fee 10/7 €, free entry for those under 18 years.
