11 Kaarina Music-classes Youth Choir was founded by master of music, Ari Hynynen, in January 2002.

12 Ari Hynynen has been conducting it since. It normally consists of pupils from the 7th to 9th grade. Now in Vilnius there are only the 9th class, altogether 20 pupils by the age of 15-16. They have been studying together for seven years, so they know each other well. In the music-classes in Kaarina the pupils study using the KODAY method. They all also play some instruments, some only for a hobby, some of them quite seriously. In this choir pupils sing for a period of three years. Normally during this time they have a possibility to visit some other countries. The choir has a very keen co-operation with Hungary, Kaarina´s friendship-city, Szentes, where it has been four times and in Estonia once and also in the friendship-city, Jõgeva and Palamuse. The choir has made two records during the years: Toisin sanoen ("In other words") and Missa III. Both of them are sacral music. Also the choir has made two recordings together with all the music-classes in Kaarina: Kukkia ("Flowers") and Uudet laulut ("New songs") which is a collection of contemporary music of the composers who live in Kaarina. Many of the pieces have been composed for the three choirs of Kaarina music-classes. Normally the choir gives concerts of sacral, non-sacral music, evergreen/pop-arrangements or traditional choral music and Christmas-time music. The choir belongs to Turku YMCA organization and performs when needed in the church or other places.

13 Let’s welcome our honourable guests from Turku. They are going to sing some songs for us.
