Marjukka Tepponen, Waltteri Torikka & Jukka Nykänen

A Night by Lake Saimaa

This feelgood concert will feature at least the timeless ”Speak Softly, Love” and the moving widow’s song from the opera Porgy and Bess. The array of opera, operetta, musical and film tunes will also include familiar Finnish solo numbers and improvisations by the multi-talented Jukka Nykänen.

A Night by Lake Saimaa is made special by not just its charismatic performers but also its sparkling, summery ambience. The complete programme will be announced later.

Like his inspiration, Franz Liszt, Jukka Nykänen is a true virtuoso. The pianist is also an accomplished composer, arranger and entertainer.

A Night by Lake Saimaa concert will take place at Kerimäki Church instead of Olavinlinna. We will limit audience numbers and ensure safe distancing at the concert according to any restrictions that are in place.
