Pirkanpojat Boys’ Choir is one of the most significant music societies for boy choristers in Finland. Since its founding in 1970, the choir has offered traditional choral education for young singers throughout the Pirkanmaa region. Over 70 boys and young men participate in the choir community, from pre-school level to college.
The choir’s repertoire includes large works of sacred music, opera, contemporary and Finnish music as well as pop songs and jazz. Pirkanpojat works in collaboration with Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra and Tampere Conservatoire. As an independent society, Pirkanpojat performs actively, both domestically and internationally, with its director Jouni Rissanen.
The choir receives notable funding from Tampere City and Tampere Parishes.
