What is Finnish-American Music?

Where did it come from?

Dr. Carl Rahkonen will use live demonstrations and sound recordings, to give an overview of Finnish and Finnish –American music, from its earliest form, rune singing, up to the Rockland Opera, written by a Finnish composer to a Finnish-American libretto, which will premier in the summer of 2011 in both countries. 

Open to the public.
