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.
