The power of presence!

Instrument group
Associate principal

I come from Kemi.

I joined the orchestra in January 2008.

I like playing juicy sounding orchestral pieces, such as Sibelius, Brahms and Tchaikovsky.

My favourite place in Helsinki is Keskuspuisto on bike.

The highlights of the spring 2016 season will be Susanna’s weeks (3.2.-4.2. , 22.4. and 6.5.), as Tchaikovsky’s fifth was absolutely stunning and raised expectations even higher. Brahms’ third and Buribayev (12.2.) will also be something special!
