Kantele got more fans in 2019!
On November 27 and December 12, 2019 two more concerts presenting new kantele music program took place in the House of Kantele in Petrozavodsk. The basis of the program is improvised music created by the project team at the Kantele Music Lab in October 2019 in cooperation with Finnish kantele performers Minna Raskinen and Hanna Ryynänen. The visitors of these event became students of the Petrozavdosk State Glazunov Conservatoire, the Karelian College of Culture and Arts, the Kantele Ensemble Youth Studio, as well as participants of children's folk group "Petrovskaya Sloboda" and other young musicians.
The "Kantele-Go!" project team and the project manager Olga Vlasova finilized the results of the year and came to the conclusion that kantele music got more fans in 2019. More concerts during the year, more visitors at the concerts, more followers on Facebook and VKontakte, more listeners on YouTube... The following event on December 17, 2019 when the project "Kantele Goes Global! Ground Zero" got the awarding certificate for Outstanding Communication in 2019 prooved this idea. Many thanks to the Managing Authority for giving this recognition and to the project team in Petrozavodsk, Kuhmo, Joensuu and Pryazha for our joint work!
