Trio Fratres

Wed 17.2.2016 at 19.00 Conservatory
Pitkänsillankatu 16

toni hämäläinenThis legendary trio returns to the concert stage. Raimo Vertainen, Heikki Jokiaho och Toni Hämäläinen perform as the virtuous accordion trio that delights and surprises the minute the music rings out.

The good rumors are true: a victory at an Italian competition; performances at renowned festivals and concerts in 16 different countries, where they even had premiering works composed especially for them.

In addition to their musical skill, Fratres has also attracted audiences through its broad and diverse repertoire. The musicians’ mastery includes that of traditional classical music greats, Russian virtuosos, local and modern composers as well as interpretations of the music of Sting and Kraftwerk.

You can hear this and more during Kokkola Winter Accordion.


Tickets 20 €/ 10 €

Kokkolan vähäriviset
Riitta Kossi




Riitta Kossi: ”We have no home; we are just guests. Fate moves us in strange ways, but never home.”

Riitta Kossi was born in Himango. Her musical journey as a member of Värttinä has taken her from the plains of Central Ostrobothnia, throughout Europe and to the United States. Värttinä can name among its accolades the 1992 Emma Prize.

A life of being on the road has led Kossi to explore American-Finnish emigrant stories and music originating in the 1920s. Her soulful crooning captures the yearning and melancholy in a waltz – yet easily can master the heartiness of a sleigh-song and the joy of a polka, to which she brings her own touch.

The evening will continue after the show to the tune of folk music. Expect lots of jamming among music students from Centria and the city conservatory, including among them some who have toured the world. The stage is open to all!

Free admission.
