Two Moons Chamber Concerts

Sid Hille’s Two Moons chamber concerts in Helsinki’s Temppeliaukio Church are held on selected Friday afternoons at 3pm.

In over 50 concerts Hille has performed mostly in a duo setting with some of Finland’s best jazz and classical musicians, improvising spontaneously without any plans or agreements. Some of the musicians Sid met for the first time just before the concert, most are musicians Sid has never played with before.

So, the outcome is always completely unpredictable, fresh, courageous and unrepeatable – unique.
