The concert will feature well-known compositions of military music that are important to Finns.
"These bands are too small!", said The Emperor, which was a start for the establishment of the Finland's oldest continuous professional orchestra 200 years ago in 1819.

The anniversary year concert gives a gaze for a diverse and highly relevant history in the field and a peek behind the scenes of historical events. During the Helsinki concert, a military musician of the year 2019 will be announced.

Conductors: The Chief Conductor of the Finnish Defence Forces, Lieutenant Colonel (Mus.) Jyrki Koskinen, The Senior Conductor, Major (Mus.) Pasi-Heikki Mikkola and former conductors of the Guards Band, Raine Ampuja and Elias Seppälä.

The Academic Male Voice Choir of Helsinki, was founded in 1838 by Fredrik Pacius and is the oldest extant choir in Finland. During the 19th century the choir became a symbol of national awakening in the emerging Finnish nation and Pacius' composition Vårt land, 'Our Land', set to the poem by Johan Ludvig Runeberg, was performed for the first time by the choir. Kari Turunen has been conducting the choir since 2008.
