Os Violinhos is a unique children's violin ensemble from the Lisbon Music Academy in Portugal under the direction of Rui Fernandes. In 2012, they went on a tour of Finland, where they captured the interest and hearts of audiences with their original take on traditional technique by playing in different poses: from laying down to even playing on a bended knee!
While in Finland, Os Violinhos made two excellent performances, with the first being at the famous "Rock Church" in Helsinki followed by a performance in Rovaniemi at the Lappia Hall as part of Rovaniemi Design Week. Both concerts were very well-attended and appreciated by all. During their concert tour, the ensemble had the opportunity to visit a reindeer farm and go on a reindeer ride, after which they enjoyed a cultural exchange and performance for a local school.
