Finland's YL Male Voice Choir.

In October, Finland's premier male voice choir, YL, completed a tour in Iceland and the United States. Known as Ylioppilaskunnan Laulajat in their native country, the choir was founded in Helsinki in 1883 and is oldest Finnish-language choir in the world.

In NPR's Studio 4A, YL performs works by Sibelius and Schubert. Matti Hyokki conducts.
