With this concert, Philomela wants to honor the life's work of Marjukka Riihimäki, who will leave her position in 2022.

Philomela's repertoire includes great songs based on folklore composed by Hanni Autere, Anna-Mari Kähärä and Antto Varilo. In the last half of the concert, the choir performs an "unconducted" ensemble composed of Tellu Turka's compositions, directed and choreographed by Päivi Järvinen.

Philomela has been able to enjoy this rewarding collaboration between composer, choreographer and choir for over 25 years. In the work presentation held before the concert, Marjukka Riihimäki, Päivi Järvinen and Tellu Turkka talk about the different stages and processes of the collaboration around each work.

Philomela's concert is part of the seasonal concert series, which presents our choral culture in a new way, performed by top choirs. The background of the choral music's seasonal concerts is the Kausikonserttikuorot ry., founded in 2021, which includes, in addition to Philomela, 26 choirs from the capital region.
