Semmarit, Finland, 2010/2011/2012

“...this is more than a male choir from Finland, this is Rock'n Roll, Pop, Classic and Show by 21 singers and performers.”
- Peter Eggers, Referat für Presse und Öffentlichkeitsarbeit,

Semmarit was found in 1989, when a group of male students from the University of Jyväskylä, Finland wanted to bring something quite different and new to the male choir scene.

Right from the beginning the choir has been quite a success. The main ideas of the Semmarit are to perform self-made music and to make a choir concert an action-packed show containing strong elements from rock-music, theater and well, whatever they come up with!

Nowadays Semmarit is a very famous show group in Finland. They also have performed in Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and Portugal. Semmarit has made a four-part tv-show of their own and has a wide experience of performing in various tv-programs both in Finland and abroad also. The live show of the choir is a mix of music, humour, dance and drama. When performing abroad, Semmarit sings in English but has also translated their songs in French, German and Portugese. In the summer of 1999 and 2000 Semmarit toured in Germany, doing shows in Berlin, Hamburg, Kiel and various smaller towns. In 2003 the group toured very successfully in the U.S and Canada, covering cities like Seattle, Bellingham and Vancouver in the Northwest area.

Semmarit is able to perform in all kinds of places, from a street corner to a stadium. For the bigger arenas and clubs each singer has a wireless headset microphone. Being wireless makes it possible for the singers to move freely around the stage. 


Semmarit“It was a fantastic feeling beeing part of the gorgeous concert of Semmarit at Kieler Woche. This is more than a male choir from Finland, this is Rock'n Roll, Pop, Classic and Show by 21 singers and performers.”
- Peter Eggers, Landeshauptstadt Kiel, Referat für Presse- und Öffentlichkeitsarbeit, Kieler-Woch

“Semmarit is a wonderfully different, cross-artistic phenomenon, selling out the biggest concert halls in Finland year after year. Funny, intelligent and a very entertaining performance indeed!”
- Tanja Rasi, Festival Manager, Jyväskylä Arts Festival

“Semmarit brings in the big crowd! Kaustinen Folk Music Festival and Semmarit have a long history together. In my opinion, Semmarit is a very suitable for our general audiences and pleasing performer to be staged on our main arena. They bring in people extremely well, thousands of spectators will be guaranteed! Semmarit show is a good mixture of creative musical and other surprises, spiced up with a lot of energy. Co-operation with Semmarit is easy and we will gladly work with them in the future as well!”
- Jyrki Heiskanen, Programme Director, Kaustinen Folk Music Festival
