At this performance can be heard Finnish compositions.
Spend the afternoon of this Sunday in February enjoying fantastic Finnish music and food. Sitting still for six hours is not on the program – quite the opposite, in fact. The idea behind this performance is like that of the Proms concert series in England, where audience members are free to come and go as they please. Lose yourself in the music one minute; enjoy a wander, a visit with friends or a bite to eat the next. The meaning here is simply to enjoy yourself. In keeping with the spirit of the event, seating is unassigned. Singing will be a part of this event.
Veli Kujala’s composition for accordion and string quartet “Shimmer of the North” will make its world premiere at Kokkola Winter Accordion!
Participating also are, among others, Chydenius-kapelli, Kokkola Songfellows, Kokkola Regional Accordion Club, Torikööri, Kaustinen High School Music Club, K-30 orchestra and Junior Accordionists.
Amica Restaurant will cater the event.
