The people’s musical market offers a wide range of sensations that excite the senses, including music, movement, sounds and smells. The Finnish Baroque Orchestra (FiBO), the main organiser of the event, is an internationally acclaimed professional ensemble which often happily collaborates with a wide range of artistic partners. The performers in the Baroque Market are both professionals and amateurs, and the age range extends from young children to adults. Most of the younger performers are from the Kaarela area (or live nearby).

The Baroque Market is a communal, multi-disciplinary encounter in a space where everyone is welcome. Performance, hustle and bustle as well as restful phases alternate at the Market. The concert will allow the crowds to stop and enjoy one cultural offering at a time. During the hustle and bustle phase, moving around is allowed and even encouraged: everyone can offer and take in small creative encounters wherever they see fit. During the restful phase, it is possible to enjoy some drinks and delicacies. The Market Master Vesa Purokuru manages the afternoon’s events with Louna Hosia, a regional cellist who continues the work of the local violist that Kaarela residents have gotten to know over the past couple of years. Kaarela residents can participate in the Kaarela Super Orchestra if they wish.
