Lapland Chamber Orchestra

Founded in 1972, the Lapland Chamber Orchestra is the most northerly professional orchestra in Finland and indeed in the entire EU. The conductor and violinist John Storgårds has been the orchestra’s artistic director since 1996. Based in Rovaniemi, the Lapland Chamber Orchestra tours regularly, in the Barents region and elsewhere in Finland. Internationally, the orchestra has made highly successful appearances at the Carinthian Summer Music Festival in Austria, at the BBC Proms in London and at the Budapest Spring Festival, as well as touring in Russia, Sweden, Denmark, Scotland, Hungary, Germany, China and Canada. The Lapland Chamber Orchestra specializes in giving world premières of works by significant contemporary composers, including Kalevi Aho, Aulis Sallinen and Bent Sørensen. It has collaborated with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and distinguished guest performers including Soile Isokoski, Christian Tetzlaff, Nicholas Kraemer and Sabine Meyer. Many of the orchestra’s recordings have received critical acclaim. The Finnish Broadcasting Company selected Rituals by Kalevi Aho [BIS-1686] as disc of the year in 2009, and a recording of Kalevi Aho’s concertos for theremin and for horn [BIS-2036] received the distinguished German ECHO Klassik award in 2015.
