Suomen Orkesteri ~ New York Horns


Lasse, 1. trumpet, arrangements
Lasse seems to like the graduation very much having done it several times, lately as Ph.D. in Chemistry. Members of the orchestra are wondering how a white man can play trumpet like Lasse does. Classic, jazz, polka - name it, he'll play it.

Leksa, trumpet, Es-cornet, piccolo trumpet
The lead (Pb) trumpeter of the band, having broken the sonic barrier and eardrums repeatedly. Practicing global trade interferes performing art significantly. As a jovial Karelian boy, has spread the gospel of Suomen Orkesteri in, e.g. mariachi bands and at the Marrakech serpent fare.


Razia, trumpet
Razia is the most irreplaceable member of the orchestra, as he provides the rehearsal and storage facilities, as well as the beer. One regular oxymoron: simultaneously the oldest and youngest member of the group. An outstanding example how long-lived business life cannot destroy your embouchure!


Kari, conductor, trumpet
Contrary to tens of thousands of Finns, Kari has an insured job. As a conductor, have learnt to follow the band quite well, sometimes covering also the trumpet section. Conductivity increases at low temperatures.


Timi Mara, non-straight horn
We have not found out yet which of his names is the first name or the surname. Still, a newcomer in the band as a corny player who, after living several years in China, suffers from a typical Asian fear of losing his embouchure. A talent whom Suomen Orkesteri has given a launch pad.


Hannu "Peugeot", euphonium
Hannu is the black sheep of the orchestra as he has not graduated from HUT like the others. Yet, when listening to the orchestra it becomes increasingly apparent why he is needed: as a physician he takes care of heart and other attacks of the audience.


Ari, trombone
Ari is another member of the trombone section with a destructive power. He has been inquired to join the anti-tank troops of the military forces of the EU. Below his sensitive and tranquil cover there hence reside explosive forces. An eagerly advancing character, therefore usually ending a piece of music before other members of NYH.


Risto"Sus", trombone
Risto is a part of the success story of the Finnish telecommunication industry, although not the wireless one. He is the first person in the orchestra to tell where to draw the line. Participated in the fall of the Berlin Wall.


Jyrki, tuba, arrangements
Jyrki does not play acid in his house but the tuba in his basement. He is also a very good architect, because he has actually lived in the house he had designed himself. Responsible for several arrangements for the orchestra.
