 What the New York Times wrote on your birthday? - Music and Microfilms

The Night of the Arts at the National library on 18th August at 6.15-9PM offers a change to get to know the secrets of the microfilms. Come by yourself, with a friend or even with a small group and investigate what the “Big apples” leading newspaper - The New York Times wrote when you drew your first breath! In the North Hall, the visitors have a change to read the paper published on the day of their birth, under the guidance of our staff.

In case of formation of queues, on worries! Since in the Cupola Hall, the audience can enjoy musical professionals! At 6.30PM Duo Ilomäki & Turriago plays piano and flute music. Flutist, musician & music pedagogic Julia Ilomäki (b.1994) and composer, pianist, and conductor Tuomas Turriago (b.1979) are seasoned artists whose work share the ability to move fluidly over the borders of various genres. Julias music is characterized by versatility and passion for all kinds of music. Tuomas in turn is known especially as an experienced player and composer of chamber music.
