The 40-voiced mixed choir from Sibelius High School in Helsinki, led by their director Marjukka Riihimäkki, brought their cool nordic sounds to sunny Naples. They gave a private concert at Moorings Park’s Bower Chapel, sang Sunday services at Naples United Church of Christ, presented a public concert that afternoon, and gave workshops/concerts at Pine Ridge Middle School and Barron Collier H.S. on Monday before leaving for Miami. You can see videos of their singing here:
