OPENING CONCERT "Songs of Love"

Thu 23.8.2018 at 19:00 Kotka Concert Hall
Fri 24.8.2018 at 19:00 Kouvola City Hall

Love has, from time immemorial, unleashed the creative powers of composers and poets in the most unforgettable melodies and verses: hits the beauty and inspiration of which speak to us all. They may be about love for a particular person, nature, or maybe the homeland. The magnificent voice of Kotka baritone Riku Pelo skilfully transports us from one genre to another, from classical opera arias to lighter repertoire, and not without a touch of humour. The concert will also spotlight artists from the ranks of our own Kymi Sinfonietta, under the baton of Eero Lehtimäki.
