The Henxilit Children’s Concert was founded in 2007 in Kokkola. Their performances include captivating stories, upbeat jingles and an arsenal of acoustics that promise moving interpretations of life’s great wonders.
The orchestra performs at daycare centers, in schools, at nursing homes and at different events throughout Finland. Henxelit plays extremely heartfelt and entertaining music and features in their performances music from around the world. The listener is invited to enjoy tastes of everything from polka to delta blues, and from swing to Finnish jenkka. The playing is strong, the songs are uplifting and the instruments sparkling – but most importantly is the joy this orchestra immediately brings to its listeners.
School concerts are sold out.

A concert with three virtuosos who are connected by both the music of today and that of the future: digital accordion, electric violin and beatbox.
The digital accordion’s unlimited possibilities unite with that of the electric violin and the beatbox. Expect Finnish compositions, improvisation and surprising solos. This is a new trio’s adventure in music’s swirling circles. We do things in a different way – in a new way.

Vähäriviset’s cavalcade of traditional composers is sure to please. Tapio Miettinen leads the smiling gang that will suit masters, journeymen and beginners equally well.

The stage is open to all. Let the busking commence!
