Musta lammas (‘det svarta fåret’) består av tjugofyra passionerade yrkesmusiker från huvudstadsregionen, som har arbetat tillsammans sedan 2016.

Kören är specialiserad på så kallad rytmmusik, vilket innebär till exempel pop, jazz, rock, blues och funk. Musta lammas musik är en läcker blandning av egna kompositioner och fyndigt arrangerade covers. Namnet ‘Musta lammas’ hänvisar till körens banbrytande position inom det finska körfältet. Gruppen vill skaka på uppfattningen om vad högklassig körmusik kan vara, och inspirera andra till att skapa något nytt. Musta lammas har på en kort tid utmärkt sig bland de intressantaste a cappella -aktörerna i landet. Under det senaste året har kören setts som huvudakt på bland annat SingStrong-festivalen i New York och Vasa Körfestival. I juni 2017 vann Musta lammas första pris i danska Aarhus Vocal Festivals körtävling, samt ett specialpris för tävlingens bästa arrangemang. Kören leds av Ida Olsonen.

Musta Lammas Lähellä banneri
Musta lammas: Lähellä is a collection of close-ups of everyday life. Our concert at Ritarihuone will be a more stripped down, acoustic version of Musta lammas, which listeners aren’t as used to. Musta lammas, since its’ founding in 2016, has brought a rhythmic foundation to the Finnish choral scene.

The group’s repertoire consists of own compositions and texts as well as tasty custom arrangements specifically made for Musta lammas. Musical improvisation holds an important spot in the group’s presentation both as a rehearsal tool as well as on stage.

Kuoromusiikin kausikonsertit (seasonal choral concerts) is a ground breaking project consisting of metropolitan choirs coming together for year-round concerts of the highest quality.

Finnish specialists of rhythmic music Cassiopeia from Oulu and Musta lammas from Helsinki will join forces to show what choral music at its finest can nowadays be. These concerts will offer new and refreshing views on choral music with music from Finnish and international musicians as well as own compositions. Almost all of the repertoire is custom-made for the performers making for a unique concert experience.

The latest recording project for Cassiopeia has been a collection of 15 songs of PMMP’s (Finnish pop group) music. Arrangements for the songs on the album are from some of the best and brightest Finnish arrangers. The album was released in 2019 and plenty of the songs will be present in this concert as well.

The repertoire of Mustan lammas consists of everything pop music has to offer performed with impeccable artistic vision without sacrificing groove. Listeners are in for a spectacular show which will bring forth the group’s uniqueness, energy and expertise.

Both groups will also perform as one super group, which will create an absolutely unique experience! The concerts are produced in collaboration with the Oulu Theatre.
