The quartet has a strong HKO dimension, as two of its musicians are also former members of the orchestra. Missy Mazzoli (1980-) is one of the most renowned American composers of her generation and also a smasher of glass ceilings as the first female who has been commissioned to compose an opera for the New York Metropolitan Opera. The Encounters Club will present her Harp and Altar, which was inspired by the Brooklyn Bridge. Steve Reich’s 9/11 is a piece in three movements based on the tragic events in Manhattan in 2001.

The club is an arena for creative ideas and surprising encounters with performances by the orchestra’s musicians and friends. The club will take place in the main foyer of the Helsinki Music Centre.

Free admission – welcome! The programme begins at 9pm, and the café is open until 10:30pm.
