Helsinki Chamber Choir

Founded in 1962 as the Finnish Radio Chamber Choir, this ensemble is Finland’s only professional choir. The choir has always had a broad repertoire and has been key in commissioning and giving premières of new works. For this concert they bring a mix of music from their homeland, from medieval latin songs to choral settings by Sibelius and recently written works including the imaginative lyrical settings of Lorca by Rautavaara. 

Part of the Nordic Choral Expedition a tour by the professional choirs of the Scandinavian countries through European Festivals.
