"I will compose the most beautiful songs for you" -The personal profiles of Finnishentertainment composers in songsand stories
The choir will organize in Raahesali the concert "I will compose the most beautiful songs for you". This concert is the choir's main event in the celebration of Finland's Centenary year. This concert presents the choral conductor Pauli Ylitalo's drawn up personal repertoire of the songs by Finnish composers and lyricists from the entire period of independence from J. Alfred Tanner until today. Among the masters presented are: Veikko Lavi, Toivo Kärki, Reino Helismaa, Rauno Lehtinen, Kaj Chydenius, Mika Vainio, Juice Leskinen, Veikko Juntunen and Jukka Kuoppamäki. The performance includes community singing better known as a "Sing-along".
This year, when recalling the civil war of 100 years ago and its aftermath, the choir has several appearances during Vappu, the first of which is on the eve of the anniversary. At that time, the Raahe prison camp was housed in the Raahe Porvari and Kauppakoulu.
Saturday 27.1.2018, was exactly one hundred years after the beginning of the Finnish Civil War, on this day we enjoyed the mixed choir of Ajan Laulu who performed very well composed and interesting songs from that period. A multimedia presentation brought a more visual look to the concert.
