Finlandia – Celebrating the choral heritage of Finland

May 20 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

The Nordic Heritage Museum presents the Emerald Ensemble in the inauguration of their new concert hall! Choral music has long been a staple of Finnish culture, led by the anthem Finlandia by Jean Sibelius. In the twentieth century, Finnish sacred music flourished in the hands of the late Einojuhani Rautavaara. Among the current generation of brilliant composers is Jaakko Mäntyjärvi, whose works are at turns comic (El Hambo) and dramatic (Canticum calamitatis maritimæ).
