The Young Finnish Accordionists consist of Finland’s most capable young accordion players, most of whom are music students from various Finnish institutions. The gathering of accordionists as accomplished as these is unprecedented and remarkable even on an international scale. The orchestra’s concerts have been well-received, and even in its short history can it claim among its accolades first prize in 2011 at the prestigious Pula accordion orchestra competition in Croatia. The orchestra has received international attention for its energetic, artistic works and its diverse repertoire.
In her performances, Soprano Annika Mylläri rises to meet every musical challenge. The evening’s concert will feature Verdi’s and Bellini’s classic arias accompanied by an accordion orchestra. Winter Accordion welcomes all to an outstanding musical experience, where we will also hear specially arranged music performed by Veli Kulias Two.
