School stuff

My second semester started in the beginning of September (I study church music in the Sibelius Academy in their Kuopio campus) and so far we’ve been able to have our lessons on site… let’s see how long we’ll be able to do that…

15 minutes of great pipe organ music

Yesterday I listened to about 15 minutes of great organ music in the main local Lutheran church… Man, that Marcussen organ sounded beautiful again! It’s the oldest Marcussen in Finland by the way…

Easter time concerts

Mr. Tomi Satomaa gave us some very chilling and beautiful organ music (the “Variations on Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen” by Liszt were just magnificent!) and occasionally Mrs. (or Ms.) Anna Satomaa played solo flute on

Missio Finlandia 2012

Hi there again! So much has happened during last two weeks… I’ve been accompanying the singer and evangelist Eija Merilä during a mission tour held by Dr. Chauncey Crandall and his wife Deborah Crandall from Palm Beach, Florida… Quite busy and exhausting but at the same time very rewarding two weeks, I must say… We
