Biography

Rajaton is a Finnish a cappella choral ensemble, founded in Helsinki in 1997. The Finnish word Rajaton means boundless, which is an indication of both the breadth of their repertoire, from sacred music to near Europop; and, according to the official website, “the way Rajaton approaches music”.

Rajaton performs primarily in Finland, but also tours around Europe and the rest of the world. Performances in North America are rare, but Rajaton regularly appears in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada for the Festival 500 choral festival, and has been guest artist at the Kaleid Choral Festival in Woodstock, Ontario, Canada in 2005 and 2006. Rajaton’s fan following has grown enormously over the past 4 years. In 2005, Rajaton album sales reached 100,000 worldwide as their album Kevät went gold.

Rajaton also includes original material in their repertoire: aside from works by composers such as Mia Makaroff, some of their pieces are written or arranged by members of the ensemble.

The six members of the group are:

* Soprano: Essi Wuorela
* Soprano: Virpi Moskari
* Alto: Soila Sariola
* Tenor: Hannu Lepola
* Baritone: Ahti Paunu
* Bass: Jussi Chydenius
