Programma e curriculum del coro e della direttice:
Näen sinut – I see you
Näen sinut (I see you) is a collection of modern Nordic choral music that has been inspired by the rich folk music traditions in Finland, Sweden and Norway. The core of the concert is built with the songs of a Finnish composer Anna-Mari Kähärä, and the music of Kraja, a Swedish folk vocal group. The main theme of the lyrics of the songs are how it’s important to be seen and accepted as you are, no matter the circumstances you’re living in. We wish you a great concert!
