Through joy!

Instrument group
Associate principal

I am from a farm in western Uusimaa.

I joined the orchestra in autumn 1999.

I like to play all kinds of music: In that sense I’m quite omnivorous.

My favourite place in Helsinki is the southern tip of Lauttasaari.

The highlights of the spring 2016 season for me are all the concerts, but if I had to pick out just a few then the visits by John Malkovich and Matthias Pintscher (6 January and 30-31 March).
