NSSS stands for Nordic Student Singers’ Summit (or Nordisk studentsångarstämma in Swedish), and it is a festival for student choirs all over the Nordic countries and the Baltic. It is hosted every three years by a different country, and in 2017 it’s Finland’s turn. Previous NSSS’s have been in Tartu, Estonia and Linköping, Sweden.
The independence and uniqueness in us all
2017 is a special year for NSSS, since it will be the tenth time the festival will be held. What’s more is that the year 2017 marks one hundred years of Finnish independence. This double anniversary certainly calls for celebration! The theme for NSSS 2017 will be the independence and uniqueness in us all here in the North.
The hosting choir will be Cassiopeia, the mixed choir of the Student Union of the University of Oulu and TeeKu choir. Finland has hosted the event twice before, in 1990 in Turku and in 2005 in Lappeenranta.
