Tampereen Salonkiorkesteri

Tampereen Salonkiorkesteri (TSO) is an amateur orchestra and the only actively performing salon music orchestra in Tampere and Pirkanmaa.

The program of the orchestra consists of traditional salon music, from popular to light classical. Most of the performances are given  in Tampere city center or in the suburbs of Hervanta, Ikuri, Kaukajärvi and Teisko. You can also book the whole orchestra or a smaller group to play in your event. We will tailor the show together with you to suit your event. Fees of shows will be settled on a case-by-case basis.

From spring 2020 onward the orchestra will be conducted by György Balász with Pekka Ahonen.
