SEELA SELLA is an actress whose heart is close to performances that enable audience interaction. Our country’s most brilliant acting legend has been awarded the honorary doctorate from the Theatre Academy of the University of the Arts Helsinki, as well as numerous other cultural accolades.

PIA FREUND is a familiar figure on opera stages, a soloist with major orchestras, and an interpreter of chamber music, lieder, and poetry. With the motto “Art is an interpretive relationship in which the world speaks through art,” she immerses herself in creating provocative artistic works through theater, dance, visual arts, poetry, and music, with the aim of genuine encounters with fellow artists and the audience.

LOUNA HOSIA specializes in early and Baroque music. She has premiered numerous works by Finnish contemporary composers. Hosia’s versatile musicianship has taken her to international concert stages with cross-genre works, as a visiting concertmaster to city orchestras, as a solo performer in her hometown suburbs, as a chamber musician at various multidisciplinary festivals, and as a music educator in Porvoo. Hosia is the Finnish champion of musical saw playing.

TAINA-MAARIA RAUTASUO is a versatile voice professional, pianist, and accompanist who moves seamlessly from film and theater music to hymn arrangements and pop-jazz vibes. She enjoys developing performance concepts that creatively combine her own musicianship with theater, literature, and poetry.

The ensemble will perform in the concert “I dreamed of summer once” at Joroinen Church on July 30th at 17:00.
