A short history of the UNICA Anthem

UNICA 79 was held in Finland.
In the organising committee the idea emerged to have an anthem composed and dedicated to UNICA. It could be used during the UNICA'79 Congress and become a general symbol of UNICA in the future.

We turned to a young composer whose father was a member of the organising committee.
Olli AHVENLAHLTI composed an anthem and donated it -including the copyrights- to UNICA

Today, he has become a well-known composer and has been appointed as the chief conductor of the Orchestra of the Channel One Program of the Finnish Television.
