How about some jazz for lunch?

UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra and Savoy Theatre Helsinki continue their popular lunch concert series! During the spring season 2020, the concert series will return with new editions on Tuesdays 11 Feb, 10 Mar and 31 Mar.

UMO Helsinki will be treating the audience  to a robust set of Frank Zappa’s orchestral works in Ed Palermo’s arrangements. Comprising of Zappa’s instrumental classics, the concert menu will include such pieces as King Kong and Peaches en Regalia, plus three newish Zappa renditions written by young and aspiring Finnish arrangers Sampo Kasurinen and Artturi Rönkä. The concert will be conducted by Valtteri Laurell Pöyhönen and the Zappa role is played by talented guitarist Jere Haakana.

This concert sold out in February at G Livelab, so hurry up with the tickets!

Frank Zappa (1940–1993, USA) was a quirky pop music original, versatile and talented musician, composer, guitarist, vocalist, song-writer and band leader whose undeniable musical genius is manifested in his numerous albums, satirical writings and knack for orchestrating music for a wide variety of groups.
