HAKUNA MATATA 2.0 11.3. Carelia-salissa!

The audience requested and we listened – Hakuna Matata makes a comeback in March!

In February 2017, UEF Choir Joy held a cartoon film music themed concert, and it was a raging success. The two concerts sold out very quickly, so we decided to make a comeback.

If you love films like Lion King, Aladdin or Frozen, this is your kind of concert!

The tickets are sold in Carelicum and the student union’s (ISYY) Joensuu office from December 14th onwards, so this makes a perfect Christmas present for the whole family!

adults: 15 €
students: 8 €
children 2-12 years 5 €
family ticket 2 adults + 2 children 35 € – sold in advance only!

adults: 20 €
students: 10 €
children 2-12 years: 5 €

Remember to buy your tickets soon!

Our choir in a nutshell

1969: Straighten up your tie and your jacket.
2013: Eye-liner to the boys, shaggy hair, staples ‘n’ leather!
2015: Joululauluja toukokuusta eteenpäin, kuinkas muuten!
A lot has changed, but the atmosphere is the same. Laughter and joyful chit-chatting echoes in the backroom, as dozens of nervous singers are going through the lyrics of the songs one more time before going to the stage!
Itä-Suomen yliopiston kuoro Joy ry, JOY-choir, works separately from the University of Eastern Finland and it is its own, separate organization. Our choir is a mixed choir with roughly 60 singers, that has students from all the faculties of the university, exchange students and former students that have moved on to working life. Among the merry singers one can find smaller groups, for example our very own a cappella male quartet Yömyssy.
Doing things happily together is what JoY-choir is really all about!
