Vocal group Kuvaja and pop choir Kipinät join their young and talented forces in the concert “To you”.
Kuvaja, a vocal ensemble founded in Helsinki in 2017, is becoming well known in Finland and beyond for heartfelt performances of a wide variety of mainly homemade a cappella arrangements. The ensemble’s five members, professional musicians with diverse backgrounds as soloists, music pedagogues, and arrangers, are united by their experience of music as a healing force. This core belief sets Kuvaja apart from other vocal groups, reflecting the ensemble’s unique sound and providing a deeply personal motive to its music-making.
Kipinät (Sparks) is a mixed rhythmic a cappella choir from Jyväskylä. The choir is composed of 45 a cappella lovers and led by Kaisa Halmemies.
The choir has gained recognition in Finland with live radio performances on Radio Suomipop. In 2021, they made it all the way to the semifinals on Finland’s Got Talent. In June 2019, Kipinät attended Tampere Vocal Music Festival chorus review and was awarded with three gold stamps and a Conductor’s Prize.
