Philomela is an innovative and skilled female choir known for its strong and memorable musical performances which often deal with a woman’s life, its joys and sorrows. Philomela commissions new music frequently and works with contemporary composers who take elements from Finnish folk tradition and creatively combine it with their own musical ideas. The choir is conducted and founded by Marjukka Riihimäki.
Philomela uses human voice in all possible ways from sweet to coarse and soft to loud. Movement and spatiality are also essential parts of Philomela’s performance. The space is always a key element to present a multidimensional musical experience for the audience.
Philomela’s unique musical expression has succeeded to touch audiences’ hearts all over the world across language and cultural barriers. Philomela has won Championship titles in the World Choir Games in 2014 and European Choir Games in 2013.
