Viipurin Lauluveikot, The singing fellows of Viipuri, second oldest male choir from Finland will tour the West coast of US.

After the concert there is a reception with refreshments, coffee and Finnish pulla (sweetbread).
This year, 2017, is the Centenary of Finland's Declaration of Independence on December 6, 1917. Viipurin Lauluveikot was founded 120 years ago in Viipuri (since 1945 known as Vyborg, Russia), then the third largest and most cosmopolitan city in the autonomous Grand Duchy of Finland in the Czarist Russian Empire. Unfortunately, Viipuri and the eastern part of Carelia had to be ceded to the Soviet Union as a result of World War II. In 1944, the choir relocated to Helsinki, Finland.
Presently, the male choir comprises 70 active, and 30 veteran singers. It performs works mostly by Finnish composers and especially songs about lost Viipuri and Carelia. The link below opens up a list of their recordings. You can listen to some samples of their recordings.

The tour is sponsored by the Finlandia Foundation National and local chapters on the west coast.
