Ursula is an active TampereAllBright Ambassador who was born in Tampere. She has been producing and managing the project for the first time in very close cooperation with Heini Kärkkäinen, who knows the chamber music field and who has invited her artist friends to Tampere. Ursula is enthusiastic to develop Tampere Region and she has experience in networking, project work and marketing. Ursula also loves classical music and Music Academy is a place in Pyynikintori, which she knows from her childhood. Ursula has strong intercultural and communications skills and she has a background in higher education, project coordination and marketing.

“ I think Tampere need to upgrade the events and festivals and to offer also something in the classical music. There are lots of other type of music festivals in Tampere. We also have a great cooperation with Tampere Filharmonia and two of the concerts of the festival are in cooperation with them. We decided with Heini that we need to have some beautiful venues for beautiful music too. It is not often when people get the possibility to go to a concert in the City Hall or in Näsilinna! Heini also wanted the share her knowledge and experience of the health and wellbeing impacts of music to all people. Therefore we have the lectures with medical doctors too. Music heals – music and wellbeing play together. Warmly welcome to the concerts and lectures!  I want to express the gratitude and appreciation for our main sponsor Pirkanmaa Culture Fund (Pirkanmaan Kulttuurirahasto) and all the sponsors and people who have helped to make this true."
