Brought together by the joint-orchestra tour between The Juilliard School and the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki last summer, these American and Finnish musicians reunite to debut the Versoi Ensemble, a new force for music and cultural diplomacy through chamber music projects.
Works on this program feature both chamber music and string orchestra and are the culmination of a week-long residency in New York for intensive study and cultural exchange. A tour to Sarasota, FL follows this performance.
Versoi Ensemble is grateful to the support from the Ehrnrooth Foundation (Finland), Finlandia Foundation National, Fractured Atlas, and the Friends of Sibelius Academy.
