Veteli Boys´ Choir started in Veteli, Middle Ostrobothnia, in the spring of 1985. The choir was founded by Simo Kangas, who has been the choir's director since. At first there were about 40 boys in the choir, all of which were sopranos or altos. After few years boys grew up, their voice changed and so the choir got its first tenors and basses. Originally all the boys were from Veteli but in recent years boys from neighboring areas like Evijärvi, Halsua, Kaustinen and Teerijärvi have also joined the choir. Over the years the choir has grown into one of the largest boys´ choirs in Finland with the present amount of 70 singers. A men´s choir that sings either together with the whole choir or separately with a repertoir of its own has also developed among the boys´ choir.
