Snellman Hall 15.00 and 19.00
Under the direction of Raimo Vertainen
soloists Teemu Roivainen, Satamakadun Seireenit and Oona Airola
February 2015 will mark 100 years since the birth of Olavi Virta. We celebrate this milestone by honoring his significant contribution to the accordion world in a concert. The fresh tango king Teemu Roivainen will present Virta’s tango classics through the years. And prepare to meet the famous Malando-tango world Tico-tico in an affair a la guardia.
The evening’s crowing experience will be a performance of pops and tango orchestra Guardia Nueva, whose concerts are filled with thunder and passion – it has to be experienced to be believed. Conductor and MC is Raimo Vertainen.
Come and listen!
