The first meeting of the Friends of UMO. Finlandia Hall 16.11.2018

Friends of UMO is a group of people, businesses and non-profit associations that wish to be in a bit more closer terms with UMO. Since its role will be modelled on the members’ wishes, as a Friend of UMO you will get not only to brainstorm ideas but also realise them with the big band. Upcoming activities include a concert trip, presentation on the orchestra’s average working day, a lecture series, artist meetings, a visit to a wind instrument repair shop and ”Enemmän irti esityksestä” (”Deeper into the Show”) presentations before UMO’s live shows.

The First Steps of Friends

Friends of UMO was launched with a toast on 16 Nov 2018 at the Finlandia Hall. In the event members could meet each other and toss around ideas for the future of UMO with saxophonist Manuel Dunkel and bassist Ville Herrala tuning us on to just the right jazzy wavelengths with their live playing. The evening was closed with UMO itself featuring the Argentinian pianist Guillermo Klein.
