Matilda Bergman is a versatile kantele musician and student of classical music at Sibelius-Academy. She has studied with Ritva Koistinen-Armfelt and Eija Kankaanranta and is currently finishing her master’s studies. In her work, she is driven by the endless variety of timbres of her instrument and strives for new ways of expression.

Laura Linkola studies the Finnish national instrument kantele in Sibelius Academy, finishing her master studies this year. As a second instrument she plays the double bass, which provides her more heavy instruments to carry and also sweet experiences as an orchestra member. She studies also orchestra conducting in the master program in Haute école de musique de Lausanne. Conducting has been her dream since the childhood and to be able to learn that she has established an own symphony orchestra, conducted regularly known amateur orchestras and worked in several projects, for example premiering and recording for Finnish broadcasting radio.
