The popular Encounters Club is an arena for creative ideas and surprising encounters with performances by the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra’s musicians and friends. The Encounters Club is open to all and free of charge, and it takes place on Fridays around once a month in the main foyer of the Helsinki Music Centre. Free admission – welcome! The programme begins at 9 pm after the evening’s concert, and the café is open until 10:30 pm.

After the Quincy! concert of the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra and UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra, the UMO Helsinki Ensemble interprets Cannonball Adderley’s best-known pieces. The theme is closely related to the evening’s Quincy! concert, as the careers of Cannonball Adderley and Quincy Jones crossed in many ways: they operated in very similar genres, from joyful and yet bluesy hard bop to soul jazz classics. Jones’s Jessica’s Day was a composition performed by both Cannonball (as a sextet) and Dizzy Gillespie (as Quincy’s big band arrangement). Jones also arranged one of Adderley’s first records. From Adderley, you’ll also hear classics such as the real soul-jazz anthem Mercy, Mercy, Mercy, the elegant swing classic Jeannine and one of the most memorable blues-jazz themes, Work Song.

The UMO Helsinki Ensemble is a smaller ensemble assembled from the UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra, whose musicians have a long career both in the ranks of UMO and in numerous projects of their own.
