The Vekara-Varkaus festival week has been filled with fun activities and now is the time for the ending concert. Itsenäisyydenpuisto is filled with picnic blankets, baskets, and children running around. The Sunday afternoon is dedicated to live music and having fun together. The Leafy Man hosts the concert and sings his favorite songs.
SIINA & TAIKARADIO orchestra’s concert Laulubussi seikkailee kicks off the program by inviting everyone to a bus trip where everything is possible. The singing bus uses singing as its fuel, so everyone’s help is needed. Welcome to a musical adventure!
The renewed Vekara orchestra honors the memory of Jukka Itkonen by performing his beloved children’s songs. He was the creator of The Leafy Man and his song lyrics and compositions have been part of Vekara-Varkaus throughout its history, from the year 1995. Pieta Martikainen is the visiting vocalist of the orchestra.
