Male Voice Choir Muntra Musikanter  

ensemble

MM is a prominent Finnish male voice choir located in Helsinki. The letters MM stand for Muntra Musikanter – ‘Merry Musicians’ – and the name is taken from the choir’s own honorary song. The founding members initially named their chorus “P.C.” which was short for Petersburg Concert. The name referred to a planned concert trip to St Petersburg, which never materialized. The choir survived, and gave its first performance May 11th 1878 and later took the name Sällskapet MM (MM Society). Today, MM still stands as a well-known and popular male choir, regularly giving well received concerts both home and abroad. MM is a highly active choir with approximately 100 members. Henrik Wikström is the conductor of MM since 2010. He is also the conductor of the Federation of Swedish-speaking Male Choirs of Finland. Henrik was awarded with the Pro Musica prize in 1998.

"et mørkt mammutopus, hvor orkestret knager og brager som tektoniske plader, der forskyder sig, mens musikken pibler som vand, og dybe toner slår ind i undersøiske grotter"
