Summer in Helsinki wouldn’t be perfect without UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra’s concerts at Espa Stage!

There will be two admission free concerts at Espa Stage on Friday 28th of August: at 2 pm and 4 pm. Duration 60 minutes each.

Conductor Ed Partyka has planned a program of big band jazz classics. An imaginary journey takes us to New York streets and clubs, presenting the some of the most incredible big band music ever written performed by New York’s top jazz musicians:  Thad Jones, Bob Brookmeyer, Jim McNeely and more.

Since we cannot currently visit New York and American musicians cannot currently visit Finland, we thought we could bring a taste of the Big Apple to Helsinki and present some the best music from 50 years in concert at the Espa Stage.

Due to covid-19 situation, program handouts are not provided. Please download the program here >>
