The UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra creates a learning environment – a Jazztasting – in which the audience can learn about big band music at the same time as raising their awareness of nature conservation.

Jazztasting – Learning Climate Concert is a musical journey into different flavours of jazz and big band music: you will get familiar with big band arrangements, improvisation, themes and dynamics by hearing some of the most legendary compositions of Duke Ellington, Thad Jones, Count Basie, Dizzy Gillepie, Herbie Hancock and Bob Brookmeyer. The orchestra will be conducted by Ville Vannemaa.

The jazz police will not be admitted in this learning environment, so everyone is free to taste jazz in their preferred way, with or without expertise.

The choice of ticket price (€20, €25, €30, €35, €40, €45, €50) is in your hands. Tickets are available from Ticketmaster.

The profits of the concert will be forwarded to the Finnish Natural Heritage Foundation.
