Music! Echoes from the past of a city
Exhibition Music! Echoes from the past of a city at Hakasalmi Villa showcases the history of music in an entirely new way: by giving centre stage to music lovers, listeners and enthusiasts, who have also taken an active part in the creation of the exhibition.
This entertaining journey from music past to present highlights a wide range of musical experiences that stir your memories and emotions, such as school songs, music lessons, Christmas carols, park concerts, Walkmans and band T-shirts
The colourful and visually captivating exhibition is filled with the echoes of chapel arches, the sweet melodies of music parlours and the beats of band basements. Furthermore, visitors will get the chance to put their musical taste to the test, brave school singing exams, learn to dance the minuet and take a peek in the closet of a Eurovision fan.
Music and dance at Hakasalmi Villa
For the duration of the Music! exhibition, the hall of Hakasalmi Villa, which used to serve as the parlour of Aurora Karamzin, will be repurposed to serve as a concert venue.
The scheduled programme will start on Thursday, 19 March with a dance trip to Helsinki's disco history, and continue throughout the spring with children's adventures into the music-filled city and the celebration of Eurovision Saturday. In addition, matinee concerts will be held in the hall every Sunday at 2pm, there will be a number of evening concerts.
