The Defence Forces' music playing business card
For more than 200 years military music has been part of Finnish cultural life. All six military bands uphold traditions and will of defence as well as work abroad as exporters of Finnish culture and share knowledge about conscription in Finland.
The military bands hold concerts throughout Finland and also perform abroad. Overall, the bands have more than 1,000 performances each year. The performances vary from traditional guard parades, visually impressive international marching festivals and concerts of exquisite symphonic wind music to skillful performances of chamber music and entertaining popular music shows.
Warmly welcome to attend military music events!
