Dissonanssi is a mixed choir from Otaniemi singing diverse music all the way from renaissance to glam metal — without forgetting to have fun! The choir was founded in 2013. Our members are mainly students of Aalto University.

We have rehearsals once a week in Otaniemi. The choir is conducted by Nadja Härkönen. Our rehearsals are conducted in Finnish, however you are welcome to join even with no Finnish speaking skills, someone is always willing to translate!

Want to sing?

We welcome new singers in the beginning of every semester by organising open rehearsals and auditions in September and January. Prior experience on choir singing is not mandatory, but it is useful if you are be able to practice also on your own.

In the auditions, only the choir conductor and vocal range leaders will be present, and you will be asked to sing one song of your choice without accompaniment, after which we will test your vocal range and do a melody repetition task.

Follow us on Facebook to hear about the auditions!

Dissonanssi performances

Dissonanssi organises two concerts during the year, one during the spring semester and one during the fall semester. In addition to these, you can see us perform in some other events, for example Kuorojen kierros during Art Goes Kapakka. We post information of upcoming gigs in Facebook!
