Music

Music is very important to us at St Nicholas! Our choir is drawn from members of our congregation and guest musicians from the broader musical community in Helsinki. We have monthly Evensong services which can be viewed on our YouTube channel.

Our Director of Music is Erik Johannes Riekko. Born in Canada, Erik is a Finnish-Canadian choral conductor and pianist based in Helsinki. He actively works as a collaborative pianist with singers and musicians in Finland and internationally.  He is also the conductor of a professional chamber choir in Helsinki. Erik is committed to developing the strong choral and musical tradition that exists at St Nicholas and to fostering a strong and multi-dimensional relationship with the diverse cultural community of Helsinki at large, in the promotion of music from the Anglican tradition.
