From Chile to the North Concert
September 21, 2017 @ 10:00 pm - 11:30 pmFree
The instrumental ensemble “‘COLEGIO CONCEPCIÓN SAN PEDRO” was created four years ago in the city of San Pedro de la Paz, Concepción, Chile. Currently, it consists of 16 students aged 15–17 years old. They mainly perform folk and popular music from Chile, including repertoire of renowned bands such as Inti Illimani, Congreso, and Los Jaivas, among others. Additionally, the ensemble has prepared a special program devoted to composer Violeta Parra in order to commemorate the 100th birthday of this remarkable Chilean artist. The show presents to the audience not only the ensemble formed by gifted young multi-instrumentalist musicians, but also the choreography of several dances.
The ensemble is visiting Europe for the first time this autumn. They are offering an intensive program in Finland: concerts, workshops, and exchange activities organized in cooperation with several institutions, including the local schools ESH, ISH, and Käpylä Spanish School, and supported by the Embassy of Chile in Finland.
The concert features duo Sininen Tuli (guitarist Camilo Pajuelo and singer-violinist-choral condutor Sanna Mansikkaniemi); vocal group Luna and the Foreign Ministry’s Umilukkarit-choir.
Free entry. Programs: 10€.
