Timo Paasonen gets UMO’s first Jaska Prize

16.12.2021

Timo Paasonen, who has played the 2nd trumpet of the UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra since 1988, has been awarded the Jaska Prize. This is the first time the award is given in UMO. The criteria are good co-operation and maintaining good working atmosphere.

The Helsinki Musicians’ Association has been awarding the Jaska Prize since 2001. The award is presented annually in the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, the Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Finnish National Opera’s Orchestra and freelance organisations, and every other year at the Tapiola Sinfonietta. In the future, the Jaska Prize, worth five hundred euros, will be awarded every four years at the UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra. The delegation of each orchestra selects the recipient of the Jaska from among themselves in co-operation with the Helsinki Musicians Association.

Warm congratulations and thanks to Timo for a good co-operation!
