The Music Factory

The Music Factory is a music workshop project produced by UMO Helsinki for eight-graders studying at arts-oriented secondary schools in the Helsinki metropolitan area. Musician Aija Puurtinen, percussionist and expert of Brazilian music Sami Kontola, and saxophonist-conductor and UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra´s artistic partner in audience outreach, Ville Vannemaa, are in charge of the pedagogical offerings, teaching the students in composition, lyric-writing and rhyhmics. The project ends with a public concert where the students perform their own songs together with UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra.

The project will be organised in autumn 2019-2020 already for the fourth time in total.
