The Musica Nova Festival of 2017 in Helsinki performed its remaining notes last Sunday. I attended 16 of the concerts, in three of which I contributed as a performer, those being singing a considerable programme with the Helsinki Chamber Choir and soloistic improvising in the Ears Open Ensemble with Jan St. Werner. Both the publicity work and the artistic level of the programming were of high quality. The practicalities with exquisite venues and timeslots allowed flexibly for interaction; some programs were reperformed to ensure more people could hear the music. The artistic director Andre de Ridder has done a great service to the Helsinki new music life, and we can look forward to more in February 2019!
