Concert info

UMO Jazz Orchestra visits Rovaniemi after several years! 

In one of UMO’s most interesting concerts this season we will plunge into the world of film music – be prepared for iconic tunes that will make you cry, laugh and be stirred inside!

Concert Blue Notes on Silver Screen comprises well-known and beloved score themes and nostalgic big band music from the 50s to today. The dazzling jazz singer Emma Salokoski will join UMO as a soloist and the concert will be conducted by Kirmo Lintinen.

The programme will be composed of music from many film genres – animation to horror and hardboiled action – including numbers from such films as Anatomy of A Murder, Touch of Evil, The Pink Panther and The Incredibles. The concert will feature pieces from the repertories of Duke Ellington, Raymond Scott, Henry Mancini and Monty Norman, among others.

Jazz and cinema were born around the same time, in late 19th century, but blue notes hit the silver screen big time only in the 50s and 60s when large string orchestras were replaced by the energy of big bands. Now UMO will unleash their energy and tackle the musical treasures of film classics giving them a subtle facelift.

Singer-songwriter Emma Salokoski’s impressive career comprises a range of different musical projects across the field of Finnish music. She has performed with some of the foremost of Finnish musicians, fronted symphony orchestras and appeared on the main stages of various Finnish rock festivals. Her solo debut, Kiellettyjä asioita (engl. “Forbidden Things”), came out in 2015. In addition to her solo career, she has been a major presence in such acclaimed Finnish groups as Quintessence, Q-Continuum, Don Johnson Big Band and Ilmiliekki Quartet; performed with Finnish music sensations saxophonist Jukka Perko, chamber orchestra Avanti and rapper Paleface; and released a collaborative album with Finnish singer-actress Maria Ylipää. She was awarded with the Emma Music Prize for Best Female Artist in 2006.
