AcaCartelli was born out of a guest appearance by Rajaton and Club for Five on a disc by the FORK vocal ensemble. The three ensembles gave a joint concert at the Helsinki Festival in 2017 that was so well received that another concert was quickly organised. Now, this super a cappella combo visits Tampere for the first time.
Both Rajaton and Club for Five are well known at the Tampere Vocal Music Festival, having each won the Contest for Vocal Ensembles at consecutive festivals at the turn of the millennium – Rajaton in 1999 and Club For Five (or Club 45, as it then was) in 2001. Both went on to become the brightest stars in the Finnish a cappella firmament, with a committed following both at home and abroad. FORK, for its part, is known for its energetic performances combining music, theatre and dance – all with feeling, humour and self-irony.
The programme consists of performance by each ensemble and joint numbers in various combinations. An unforgettable show is in store with many a laugh yet undoubtedly also with a few tear-jerkers.
