If you're a music fan, then the VocalEspoo Festival is one to add to your travel bucket list. But this is no ordinary musical celebration, with the audience playing an influential role.
Over the years, this international celebration of vocal music has attracted numerous international choirs, famous vocal ensembles and choir leaders, while also ensuring that local Finnish choirs are strongly represented.
While welcoming talented vocal groups from around the globe, the event strives to embrace the immediate community. Local composers can submit their own compositions for the choirs to perform at the festival’s showcase opening concert, and for this year’s event there has been an enormous 127 entries. This is then whittled down by a panel and organised into what’s always an encapsulating set list on the night.
In what’s sure to be a highlight, two of Finland’s top female choirs will engage in a contest with the audience as the jury. Whether you’re a ‘Gleek’ or not, this is guaranteed to be a great night’s entertainment.
Ticket prices for the festival vary but normally fall between 15 and 30 euros.
