Is it even really Christmas without The Snowman? The halfhour animated movie based on the story by children’s author Raymond Briggs is a beloved Finnish Christmas tradition, airing on TV before noon every Christmas Eve since 1992. The film is a touching story of a little boy who joins the snowman he built in his own yard on the journey of a lifetime high above the roofs of the town. The score for the film was composed by Howard Blake and it includes perhaps its best-remembered feature, the wistful song Walking in the Air.

Oulu Symphony Orchestra presents The Snowman, seen on the screen and heard live in the hall, conducted by Kimmo Tullila.
