BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS BAROQUE

Autumn 2021
Kotka Concert Hall
Kouvola Central Church
Leader
Matias Häkkinen, cembalo
Soloist
Jussi Salonen, tenor

Did you know that many of the Christmas songs and carols so loved by the Finns have roots stretching back hundreds of years, to the Baroque? Sini Vahervuo (recorder), Matias Häkkinen (harpsichord and conductor) and Jarmo Julkunen (guitar & ukulele) have been touring together for years, taking in Christmas concerts all over Finland. We are now pleased to welcome them to the season’s closing concert of the Kymi Sinfonietta together with Jussi Salonen (tenor) for a programme of Baroque Christmas songs, some more and some less familiar. The concert will have a presenter and members of the audience will have a chance to sing.
In cooperation with the Ensemble Nylandia.
