The final countdown! Huutajat, the screaming men’s choir, has turned up in some surprising places – ranging from the Venice Biennale to the Vienna Festival and the main stage at Roskilde – and will be taking the Huvila Festival Tent in Tokoiranta park by full force in this year’s Helsinki Festival. To mark the last evening of the Festival, lines of men dressed in sombre suits will belt out a screaming storm to rattle the very structures of the Huvila tent.
Huutajat last threw themselves into a full-scale concert in Helsinki more than 10 years ago and have more recently been delighting audiences on the international stage. Before Helsinki Festival, the choir can be seen, and heard, in London and Stockholm. The entire evening at Huvila promises a unique serving of lyrics adapted for screaming, lyrics ranging from poetry to national anthems, all peppered with an appropriate revolutionary approach to mark Finland’s centenary of independence. Now gearing up for its 30th anniversary, the choir is conducted by Petri Sirviö, who is also responsible for the compositions in the programme.
Concert starts at 7 pm. Doors: 5.30 pm.
For this event you can purchase a snack by Restaurant Juuri beforehand!
