Suomen Orkesteri ~ New York Horns
Photo Galleries | Dinner Concert 2011

To celebrate their 30 years' pursuit of filling up the gap between good and bad orchestras Suomen Orkesteri ~ New York Horns added new arrangements and even long lost notations from the ancient times before computers to their repertoire for the 5th Dinner Concert.

The program of the concert included i.a. welcome cava, schnapps, starters and main course with wines, dessert and coffee.

Just like last year Suomalainen Klubi's food was excellent, and it was not too much at all. The musician still discuss if the amount of beverage was adequate.

Between meals Suomen Orkesteri interpreted such master pieces as: Saint-Saën's Le Carnaval des Animaux, Mozart's sinfonie nr. 42 - dismissed (VerLassen), WLanNote flute concerto with Albin Ioni as recorder soloist, "Ruby! Oh Dear!" - an avant garde commission arrangement of Thelonius Monk's song delivered to the concert by express courier straight from NY (sic!). And to the high suprise of the conductor Tom Migreen SO was rewarded with great applauds at the end. There were other pieces too, but due to limited space on the server, they are not listed here.

The orchestral dimensions were enforced by Anni Kadenza, SO's last years' sparkling soloist, who now played flashingly grand piano parts of Saint-Saën's Le Carnaval des Animaux not far from a foam extinguisher.

Once again Suomen Orkesteri was capable to live up to its mission and to leave memorable traces in the minds of the guests - some of them already inquiring for the date of the next year's concert to book their trips abroad on the same week.
