Bio

I am from Kemi.

I joined the orchestra in December 1981, left to become Concertmaster with the Oulu Symphony Orchestra from 1991 to 1994, and returned via Turku in 1995.

Over 30 years as an orchestra musician has made me quite omnivorous in terms of music.

My favourite places in Helsinki are the many wonderful sea views.

The highlight of the spring 2016 season for me will be the concert on 11 March with Klaus Mäkelä conducting, choreography by Sara Hirn and lighting design by Antti Silvennoinen.

ENJOY A CONCERT IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR VERY OWN ARMCHAIR 

You can now watch and listen to HPO concerts in the comfort of your very own armchair, streamed online.
The pre-concert talk (in Finnish) will help to put you in the mood. During the interval you can also meet more interesting people and hear what goes on behind the scenes.
