Meeting Points (2020) was commissioned to celebrate the anniversary of both Pirkanmaa and Vakka-Suomi music institutes. The work is pedagogic in two ways: It can be performed by advanced music institute wind bands and it also works as an introduction to the wind instruments, which was a wish from the commissioner. The band imitates, strengthens, reflects and gives space to the solistic groups. It is a same feeling I have had growing in the community of Pirkanmaa music institute many years ago as an individual young student and now as a teacher.


Meeting Points was composed with the help of Arts Promotion Centre Finland.
