Teekkaritorvet orchestra

Teekkaritorvet orchestra is a 47- year-old wind band functioning under the Student Union of the University of Oulu in northern Finland. Nowadays it consists of a delightfully multidisciplinary line-up of woodwind, brass, and percussion players from 1st year university students to alumni. Most of the players have played together for several years and all have extensive experience in their instrument, some have even studied music at professional level. Their impressive repertoire ranges from Finnish dance music to pop classics and marching music to jazz. They also play funk, disco, rock, and racy swing. This makes them a popular entertainment number about 50 gigs every year. In Finland you might spot them at various public and private functions, such as university and student festivities, graduation parties, opening ceremonies, weddings, and anniversaries.
