Rosson kulma 6-10 p.m.

Step out of the cold and into the sauna – it’s ready and waiting for you on Rosso Corner. And when you can’t stand the heat, a cooling tub of water awaits. And if that weren’t enough, you can also enjoy some Karaoke – right in the center of our city. Our two hot tubs provide a cozy bathing experience and our “his and hers” dressing rooms are warmed. They’re also carpeted, so you won’t freeze your toes off. As twilight falls and the city lights appear, the scent of the sauna makes its way around the city. Our sauna director Seppo Lankinen welcomes you.

Central Ostrobothnia Conservatory 7 p.m.
Pitkänsillankatu 16

The Ostrobothnian Chamber Orchestra
Chapel Master: Anna-Maria Helsing
Soloist: Sonja Vertainen, Janne Valkeajoki: accordion

World premiere for Aulis Sallinen’s new work.

The concert will be featured live on YLE Radio 1.

Before its independence, in 1809, 400-year-old Kokkola has at times belonged to Sweden and Russia. This history can be heard in Swedish Dag Wiren’s romantic Serenade for Strings, and in Russian Anton Arensky’s Variations on the Theme of Tchaikovsky. Finland will be represented by its beloved Sibelius’s famed Love Suite.

The Central Ostrobothnian Orchestra and Kokkola Winter Accordion will also celebrate the present with a performance of Aulis Sallinen’s Duo Concertante. The performance will feature the new generation of accordion artists, Sonja Vertainen and Janne Valkeajoki and will be conducted by Anna-Maria Helsing, who has her roots in Ostrobothnia but has performed worldwide.

Tickets: 28 € / 22,50 € / 11 € (includes service charge)
