I am proud to be part of orchestra society which has one of the oldest history in Finland together with Helsinki, Turku and Mikkeli orchestras. Orchestra has survived two wars, crisis and different struggles in difficult times. Even now we are getting challenges and trying to solve them in best way in this incredibly fast-changing world of technologies.
I have strong believe, that European music with 500 years history, or more, will survive and go to the future, comparing to the other contemporary products of our days like information technologies, mobile phones, even electricity. Those wonderful innovations come up and collapse so fast, that, in order to be „modern“, you must run after them. But while running after these modernizations we forget our human nature –to love and be loved! Lappeenranta city orchestra musicians, me and music we play for you will share these exciting feelings and love, which are encoded in the scores of Mozart, Beethoven, Debussy and, many others.
Come and celebrate with music and us our 110years anniversary!
Su tikėjimu sėkme!
With believe in success!
