Finland´s biggest cultural center – Cable Factory – is full of activities for the the whole family on “Night of the Arts” on 15th August – come and visit UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra´s open rehearsal at 1 pm!

How are the rehearsals of a professional big band like? What kind of final touch-ups are made to the programme before the premiere? Come and hear for yourself at UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra´s rehearsal hall! In UMO Helsinki´s open rehearsals you will witness how the programme gets crystallised and the orchestra’s sound unified. As the rehearsals are kept as authentic as possible, certain parts and passages may be honed a number of times. A conductor will also be present at the rehearsals, directing the orchestra toward the desired sound.

This time, the band practices the programme “Lizz Wright & UMO Helsinki, cond. Ed Partyka“. The Huvila Festival Tent programme will include, for example, big band evergreens from George and Ira Gershwin. There will be both soulful ballads and irresistible swing. The vocalist Lizz Wright is not present at this rehearsal but UMO Helsinki´s new artistic director and chief conductor Ed Partyka is seen in front of the orchestra for the first time.
