PTS Band

PTS Band is a wind orchestra from the city Pori which is located in Western Finland. Our orchestra was founded in 1887, and today it has around 40 players, all adults. Our conductor is Tommi Tuominen. We arrange annually concerts at concert halls and churches, and also perform at smaller events from parks to shopping centers. We play both classical and popular music and in recent years we have also performed with many well-known Finnish singers. PTS Band collaborates with local choirs and composers and performs new Finnish wind music. This is our first time at Mid Europe and we are looking forward to a great experience!
