WA: Finnish Fanfare Concert
January 23, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Finland’s long-standing brass band tradition started with military bands, accompanying kings and czars or leading soldiers as they marched. It quickly evolved, however, into entertainment for the common people at folk dances and hunting parties, and later into the world of jazz. It even followed Finnish immigrants to America. The highly acclaimed Cascadia Brass returns to take us on a tour of the evolution of the Finnish brass ensemble, in a grand fanfare to welcome back our Mostly Nordic series!
