The Falkmanin piha courtyard at the Helsinki City Museum will burst into song to celebrate the Pride Week!
Join the sing-along session Allsång at City Museum organised by the Helsinki City Museum. This warm and friendly sing-along event will celebrate summer, love and the Helsinki Pride Week with song. Out ’n Loud, a gay choir founded in 2004 and known for its engaging performances, will lead the songs.
The event will also be joined by glitter artists from the Ruffle Army who will create dazzling decorations for the audience members. Drinks will be served by the bar of Valkoinen Sali. The event is free and open to all. It is also part of the official Pride Week programme.
Helsinki’s gay choir Out ’n Loud
In autumn 2004, a dozen or so guys, enthusiastic about singing, gathered around a piano. Finland’s first gay choir, Out ‘n Loud, had been born. The choir chose to have an internationally recognisable name, because the plan was to immediately conquer the world. Gradually, the group began to find its voice, and in the spring the singers decided to go on a tour.
The first concert on the choir’s world tour was held at the Finnish Adult Education Institute in Etu-Töölö, the group’s second gig took them further afield to Taka-Töölö, and the third one already required a tram ride to the venue that was all the way in Kallio. Out ‘n Loud wants to gather together all the joyful songbirds and cawing crows. The choir performs both familiar and less often heard songs, and their repertoire of old and new tunes creates a deliciously glorious cacophony.
