“Inspiring for my work as a choir-conductor were the formats and the concepts oft the concerts: The sequential arrangement of the pieces, the transitions between the pieces with movements or improvisations and the “Nielsen-experience“, how Maria called it.”

EuroChoir 2018: A multicultural-musical experience

“After a warm welcome by Sulasol, and a fruitful rehearsal; when Mikko (Sidoroff) told us that the Finnish audience will have tears in their eyes after performance of Stormskärs Maja, any concerns I had were gone and I thought to myself, I couldn’t be in any other place than here.”
