”To guarantee a perfect taste experience, different types of drinks are best enjoyed in their optimal temperatures. Sparkling wine should be enjoyed chilled, so a tiny bit colder than regular wine, but too much cold can also destroy all the flavors of the wine. The best temperature varies depending on the sparkling wine, but for a traditional white sparkling wine it’s 5-7 degrees celsius.”

Wappu is coming and it’s time for us to awaken our taste buds for sparkling wine! Come together with Inkubio and the Guild of Architecture to enjoy the spring evening with some bubbly.

Sign up begins on Wednesday April 3rd and ends on April 10th, after which it becomes binding.

The Polytech Orchestra gives a spring concert with Asian flavours, Slavic poetry, and the beloved 7th Symphony by Beethoven. The opening work “In the Steppes of Central Asia” by Borodin brings warm winds from the mystic grasslands. The symphonic poem “Water Goblin” by Dvořák, based on a Slavic poem, has more vivid and dramatic tones. The climax of the concert is Beethoven’s 7th Symphony. The joyful dance-like rhythms of the symphony resemble a praise to the arrival of spring. The orchestra is conducted by James Kahane.
