Kaarina Ikonen

It’ll be ok.

Instrument group

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.
