Bio

I am from Tampere.

I joined the orchestra in 2003.

I like playing good music, composers such as Brahms, Sibelius, Mahler, Bruckner, Strauss, etc.

My favourite place in Helsinki is Kallio.

My most important teacher has been T. Ronkainen, former French horn soloist with the orchestra.

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.
