Suomi… How We Love You!

The Bloomington Symphony Orchestra, along with the Twin Cities-based Suomi Finland 100 Chorus, will present an exciting program of the old and new, as we celebrate Finland’s 100th anniversary.

        

These two groups will present an exciting program of the old and new, as we celebrate Finland’s 100th anniversary. The symphonic and choral compositions of Sibelius and Rautavaara will grace this performance, depicting the journey of Finland from its birth to the highly-developed modern country it is today.
