What is a hymn? What might it be in the future?

In working for a higher artistic degree in church music, Sirkku Rintamäki has been examining the hymn as a singer, player and composer of the future hymn. The contemporary hymn is the last of her degree concerts and provides a fruitful forum for the encounter of tradition with present-day interpretations of what constitutes a hymn. The concert also views it via improvisation and theatre and, together with the audience, creates a unique hymn space, a space for encounter. Rantamäki will guide listeners to the world of contemporary hymn in the company of the Lumen Valo vocal ensemble.
