4th ENFO meeting Helsinki

The city of Järvenpää at 35km from Helsinki hosted the first few days of the ENFO Meeting at Finland. More than 140 people including members of the three orchestras (TRADALP, FBB and Sondeseu) enjoyed the Sibelius Academy facilities at Kalio-Kuninkala resort.

In parallel with the workshops the ENFO work meeting took place in one of the buildings of Kallio-Kuninkala with the presence of the Head of the Folk Department of the Sibelius Academy Mr. Hannu Saha who also gave a welcoming speech for all the people that were attending the meeting. We talked about the promising future ahead of ENFO and the development of the network itself. One of the key points of the meeting was the set up of the activities that will take place in the 1st ENFO Conference to be celebrated in Vigo in March 2012.

During the night we enjoyed the concerts of the TRADALP Orchestra and Sondeseu Orchestra and the next day we had the pleasure to present the ENFO network to the Sibelius Academy rector in the beautiful New Music Centre of the Sibelius Academy

In the Musiikkitalo big folk opening we saw the three Folk orchestras within the ENFO network giving an splendid concert in the New Music Centre in Finland.
