During the autumn, we received excellent applications, and we are now pleased to announce that all selected events are available in the city’s event calendar. We have chosen four events that reflect the core mission of the cultural services – to offer opportunities for experiencing art and culture in Kauniainen. Although our plan was to organize four events, unfortunately, one event will not take place.

Welcome to the spring events at the Uusi Paviljonki!

Pergament & Sibelius 11.4

Welcome to experience historical moments, as Moses Pergament’s first piano concerto, composed in 1952, finally will be performed in Finland!

During the Helsinki Metropolitan Orchestra concerts, you will also hear music from two composers that were closely associated with Pergament: in addition to the piano concerto, the program includes Hugo Alfvén’s “Vallflickans dans” from Bergakungen and Jean Sibelius’ Symphony No. 3. The concert will be conducted by the artistic director of the orchestra Sasha Mäkilä and the soloist is pianist Martin Malmgren.

Songs for the criminal record – and a crash course in legal psychology 4.5

Singer, forensic psychologist and popular science-writer Julia Korkman, the current president of the European Association of Psychology and Law will perform her popular concert Songs for the criminal record at the Uusi Paviljonki. Together with extraordinary musicians Aki Hauru, Teemu Mattson, Joakim Berghäll and Robi de Godzinsky she will invite the audience to ponder questions such as why people commit crimes, how criminality can be understood in the light of statistics and science, and what miscarriages of justice can look like. The songs and short lectures will touch upon topics such as false confessions, sexual crimes, stalking and violence in close relationships. The music consists of mostly well-known songs ranging from folk songs to cabaret and jazz, in new, dark arrangements by Aki Hauru specifically for this concert series.

Mother, Can You Hear Me 5.5.

A mother is something we all know. We all have or have had a mother.
No matter who you are, we welcome you to spend a little time with us and this theme that touches us all. Let the music and texts lead you to different memories and emotions.
Hear the emotion. Grex Musicus, founded in 1991 in Helsinki, tells a story through music. The choir conveys emotion that carries beyond the bond between the choir and their conductor.
