Being Part of one famous Finnish Christmas Tradition

I wonder how many times have I watched the Declaration of Christmas Peace in Finland on TV as a child. I never imagined that one day I would be there myself playing. And now life took me here! It is possible for all people around the world to follow it live online at Yle Areena on 24th of December at noon Finnish time.

Days in the army are running fast and I have less than 100 mornings left. December has been maybe even more busy than November with many gigs around the region as you can see on the Performance page. For many smaller events the band is divided in two units to be able to do some events at the same time.

Next week the whole band will get together on Thursday 17th of December for one bigger concert with Christmas Carols in Michael’s Church in Turku. Although I’m not a big fan of Christmas Carols there are some really beautiful arrangements. And this time I will perform with the bass clarinet. Welcome!
