Ella and Friends in Concert

Thu 12/04/2018 18:30 - 19:15
Tickets: 17.50-7.00 €


The Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra’s family concert presents new music composed by Iiro Rantala for a new book by Timo Parvela titled “Ella and Friends”.

“I am Ella. We have a nice class, a nice teacher, a nice orchestra and a nice conductor. Our teacher once took us to see a real live orchestra concert. He thinks music is food for the soul and body. Personally I would have preferred to eat sandwiches, but the concert was really fun otherwise. Or at least it was until my friends disappeared. It happened right after we left our coats at the cloakroom…”
