Our popular Summer Jazz Series returns to Scandinavia House, with live performances in Volvo Hall! This summer we’re presenting performances from some of Scandinavia’s most talented jazz musicians, composers, and singers on Thursday evenings in June and July.
The series begins on June 24 with Eeppi Ursin Duo, featuring Eeppi Ursin on vocals & piano and ASF Fellow Olli Hirvonen on guitar. During the program, the artists will perform original music from Ursin’s previous and upcoming albums as well as unique versions of well-known classics.
