A double, a triple, no… a multiple party! The Elojazz festival celebrates its 35th anniversary and the Jazz-20 association, the driving force behind the event, celebrates its 50th. Artistic Director Jukka Eskola has been presiding over the event for ten years, and this year marks the 50th anniversary of the career of Jukka Linkola, who composed a grand piano concerto dedicated to Eskola. The concerto premiered at the April Jazz Festival in the spring.

The second half of the evening will feature music by the soulful Oulu-born singer Johanna Iivanainen with new orchestral arrangements by Teemu Takanen.
