Savonlinna Opera Festival Orchestra

 
The Savonlinna Opera Festival Orchestra draws on musicians from over ten Finnish orchestras and free-lancers, though it has past the twenty years or so had a nucleus chosen from the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Helsinki Philharmonic, the Finnish National Opera Orchestra and Tapiola Sinfonietta.

Any vacancies are filled with artists who have proved themselves to be of the highest artistic calibre and who are willing to adapt to the changing and often difficult conditions in Olavinlinna Castle.
