Welcome to the Pelimanni Orchestra's home page! We are a Finnish-Canadian folk music orchestra from Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.
Pelimanni Orchestra's mandate is to help preserve and promote the heritage of Finnish music culture.
Our mission is to support local Finnish and other cultural organizations with their activities, and increase the public's understanding and appreciation of Finnish music culture. We provide an opportunity for musicians and volunteers to participate and be involved in a large orchestra.
The Pelimanni Orchestra has been in existence since 1986 and incorporated in 2004. The Orchestra is a member of the Finnish Cultural Federation of Canada and the musicians are each members of the Finlandia Club.
