Description

Saana Ensemble is a vocal group made up of five native Finns who now live in the Twin Cities and perform Finnish music, sometimes with percussion and other instruments. Their repertoire is eclectic and ranges from hymns to folk songs and dance tunes. Featured composers include Kaj and Jussi Chydenius, Jukka Linkola, Liisa Matveinen, Heikki Sarmanto, Sari Kaasinen, Toivo Kärki, and Kerkko Koskinen, among others.

Saana Ensemble has performed at many Scandinavian festivals including Nisswa Stamman, Hjemkomst Festival in Moorhead, at Finnfests in Minnesota, Michigan, and Ontario, and locally at Cedar Cultural Center, New York Mills, Twin Cities churches and as part of Orchestra Hall pre-concert entertainment.

Saana Ensemble includes Ulla Tervo-Desnick (alto / accordion), Elina Ruppert (alto / guitar), Sari Rönnholm (soprano / clarinet, piano), Elina Kala (soprano / mandolin, guitar, piano), Eeva Savolainen (soprano / piano, recorder).

This concert is approximately 45 minutes in length and will be followed by a light reception with the artists, and an optional gallery tour of “Finnish and Jewish”, the current exhibition in the Tychman Shapiro Gallery at the Sabes JCC (all included in ticket price).
