The feeling of togetherness
Finland has nearly 70,000 associations, and volunteer work in them really keeps the country’s wheels turning. Most revolve around culture and hobbies, these associations have almost five million members (in a nation of 5.4 million). Among cultural associations are choirs of all kinds: youth, mixed, female, all-male, religious, university choirs, labour union choirs and even some for people who can’t sing!
