Tuulia, an all-female choir from Finland, will perform Monday in Lake County’s Finland, the city. They take the stage at the Finland Minnesota Heritage Site following a 2 p.m. presentation on Split Rock Lighthouse.
Tuulia is based in Kontiolahti, a region considered by many Finns to be the source of their cultural heritage. The choir is associated with the Joensuu folk school in Karelia.
The group has performed in Scotland and recorded a CD in 2006. The repertoire includes popular music, folk songs and some religious pieces, sung in English and Finnish.
The group is in Minnesota for a week, starting in southern Minnesota. It has a concert 7 p.m. Sunday at Duluth’s Coppertop Church.
Wolf Ridge is having its free annual all-day open house next Saturday at the center in Finland.
Kick the day off with a campus tour at 9 a.m. From 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., explore the trails, canoe Wolf and Raven lakes, or try the ropes course (right) and indoor rock climbing wall. Visitors are welcome to try the ropes and wall twice.
At 4:30, meet the education ambassadors: a friendly porcupine and several raptors.
