WAR WRITES ITS OWN SONGS

Friday 13.3.2020 at 19.00 –  21.00

Concert commemorating the ending of the Winter War 80 years ago

A war writes its own songs is a well-suited name for this concert. Seppo Hovi will tell how songs in wartime came into being  and about  the importance of music lifting soldiers’ spirits. Mari Palo and Ville Rusanen, the Dragoon Band’s  brilliant soloists will give a new spirit to these songs with their skillful interpretations.  To end the concert, Veteraanin iltahuuto (Veteran’s last call) and Finlandia will be performed. A large chorus of over 200 singers assembled from Karjalan Laulu-Veikot, Kaukaan Laulumiehet and Lappeenranta music classes will add its own glow to the presentations.

Target groups: media, citizens
