Ernest Lawson has amused and entertained the Finnish people for many years in popular Finnish TV programs like Putous and Tanssii Tähtien Kanssa. Besides his work on TV, the multi-talent has performed around a thousand times on different comedy stages. Ernest’s self-deprecating and always topical humour draws from among other things middle age, parenthood and the biggest phenomenons of the 2020’s.

UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra is the only professional orchestra in Finland specialised in jazz and new rhythm-oriented music. The big band of 16 musicians plays about 100 concerts every year in Finland and abroad. The orchestra plays a diverse range of modern music that is on the pulse of the times. The programme varies from jazz to soul and classical music, mixing old and new in surprising way, from children to senior citizens.
