Premiere performance!
By Finnish composer Jaakko Mäntyjärvi  

(You might be thinking Pseudo-Yoik or Shakespeare Songs.)  

The U of M Singers are part of a commissioning consortium that hired Jaakko to write a piece for choir.  He is flying out to hear the premiere. If you want to meet him and learn a bit more about the choral music of Finland, he is giving a lecture on April 1 at the U of M that is open to the public.
