If skiing is not your thing, get your skates on. The traditional Tapiola skating rink concert is here again. At the concert, Riku Niemi Orchestra will perform with vocalists Annimaria Rinne, Mikael Konttinen and the vocal group SoulSisters. You can expect some hard swing and groove, but room will also be left for peaceful gliding between the more upbeat tunes. RNO’s ice skating cavalcade features classics of rhythm music from the 1940s, 50s, 70s and 80s. The set list includes Earth Wind and Fire, Kate Bush, Olivia Newton-John, Benny Goodman Orchestra, Frank Sinatra, as well as surprise numbers.
Tickets for Tapiola Hall are €10 (lippu.fi); the skating rink is free of charge.
