This fall there will be ample opportunity to experience Sid Hille and his music live in concert.
After three productive and intense years that Sid spent to a large extent in his ‘composer’s shed’, SatnaMusic is producing a series of concerts featuring some of the new music that has been created.
On September 3rd, 4th & 5th the bandoneon concerto ‘Pohjolan neito – Maiden of the North’ will be debuted by the Lappeenranta City Orchestra, featuring as the soloist bandoneon artist Kristina Kuusisto and conductor Tibor Bogányi.
Additional to his weekly solo piano improvisation concerts at the Temppeliaukio Church (the 300th of which will take place on August 30th), Sid will perform with Infinita, his Finnish-Italian jazz quintet, at the Nuoro Jazz Festival in Sardegna, Italy on August 22nd.
The Contemporary Collective will be on a six concert tour in October/November 2014, last of which will be at the Kansi Auki Jazz Festival in Helsinki on November 13th.
