On December 16, a number of Finns and friends of Finland gathered at the cozy bar Estonian house to enjoy some casual conversation and a glass or two of glögi. Johanna and Chris Telander (guitar) entertained us with Christmas music as well as Johanna’s own compositions for voice and piano. The audience, which kept growing as the evening wore on, joined in singing their favorite Christmas songs from books provided by Johanna who knew all the songs! Johanna was also accompanied on piano by Sean Ferguson and his wife, as well as Johanna’s brother Mikael Haavisto, an actor based in Turku, joined in duets with Johanna. This all made for a fun and varied musical evening and put us all in the Christmas mood. We are lucky to have such talent in our midst!
