Step into the composer’s workshop! Five talented young composers from around the world have been chosen to work with the Helsinki Chamber Choir under the guidance of master composers Jukka Tiensuu and Ondřej Adámek. In these sessions they will try out their musical ideas with the singers and conductor Nils Schweckendiek. Following the workshop they will complete their compositions for a gala concert at the Viitasaari Time of Music Festival on 6 July 2016, after which an international jury will award the Einojuhani Rautavaara Prize to one of the participants. Come and hear new music in the making!

Admission is free.
