The Helsinki Complaints Choir

I saw this over at Finland For Thought and it made me feel much better.

A little background courtesy of a comment by "Hank W." at Finland for Thought.
Ah. now this is actually a community art performance. AFAIK it was a modern art performance originated by Tellervo Kalleinen ja Oliver Kochta-Kalleinen’s Birmingham First Complaints Choir in the UK. This is the Helsinki version, and they are planning to do the same in Hamburg and St.Petersburg. The idea is to ask people their gripes, and then compile a volunteer choir performance out of it. Some of that is quite funny. - FFT
The Finnish language normally sounds pretty rough, but they did a great job with this.
