Yle presented a gala concert organized by the Defense Forces on June 4. My wife and I waited for one day to hear brisk and solemn military music. What else!
The program included American and English film tunes. Where were the Finnish compositions of the military orchestra?
By whom was the gala concert program prepared? The only composition suitable for the holiday was, in my opinion March of the people of Pori. It is also suitable for the Rakuuna Orchestra’s own holiday.
