MISSION STATEMENT

The Mission of the Music Committee is to present performances of music by local, regional, and national Finnish Americans of all ages, as well as by musicians from Finland. These performances will represent a variety of styles and genres which remain true to the past and yet adapt to the music of the future. The many varieties of feelings and beliefs which enrich our heritage, as encompassed in the festival theme "The Spirit of Finland", will be demonstrated through these musicians' unique combinations of talents and personalities.
