UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra and Savoy Theatre will give their first public concerts after easing of meeting restrictions (max. 50 people) on June 3rd.

The arrangements for the concert are exceptional: tickets are sold for only 40 people, and the audience is seated in the Savoy’s auditorium for 750 people with fair safety intervals. There are only single and double ticket packages on sale, which can be purchased only at Lippu.fi online store. The seats are positioned so that the audience does not come into close contact with each other or the performers.

To minimize close contact, cloakroom services are not available, and the audience takes the jackets with them to the auditorium. Cleaning has been intensified and hand sanitiser is available. The safety intervals are taken into account also at the lobby and guided transition to auditorium. The organisers would like to remind that you should not come to a concert if a you have even minor respiratory or other possible coronary symptoms.

Led by trumpeter Tero Saarti, the UMO Helsinki Ensemble will take us on an unforgettable musical journey to the Italy of classic cinema and big emotions. This concert will limelight two beloved Italian film composers, Ennio Morricone (1928–) and Nino Rota (1911–1979). Their iconic pieces have been arranged for a jazz ensemble by Saarti, in whose hands they have gained a subtle jazzy twist. The programme features, among others, Rota’s music for Federico Fellini’s Casanova and La Dolce Vita, while songs remembered from movies Once Upon a Time in America and A Fistful of Dollars will be heard from Morricone’s repertory.

UMO Helsinki Ensemble is a one-off, ensemble-sized line-up formed by musicians known both from UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra and numerous other jazz bands and projects.
