Dear friend of Arkadia,

You are invited to a recital of Christmas Carols by the vocal ensemble Välähdys on Tuesday 16.12 at 6pm at Arkadia (Nervanderinkatu 11)

The Vocal ensemble Välähdys was founded in autumn 2014. The singers are young and enthusiastic, and are all students at Metropolia Polytechnic and Sibelius Academy. They will sing mostly Finnish Christmas carols as an ensemble but also as solo singers.

Välähdys offers different and exciting perspectives to vocal music and their performance can’t be missed!

Johannes Heikkilä, baritone
