Anyone who sings in a choir hopes one day to sing in Mozart’s Mass in C minor. But whereas the Requiem is a ball for the soloists, the Catholic Mass is a chance for the choir to shine. The Savonlinna Opera Festival Choir is an exception to the standard opera chorus in that it is an ensemble of young, trained singers able to produce both volume and a rare brightness of sound. 
Soprano Marjukka Tepponen is a soloist who has risen from the ranks of the Opera Festival Choir. “When I joined the Choir, I had just begun my voice studies. It was the summer job of my dreams. I was able to watch the professionals at work and learn how an opera is made.” There is, for Marjukka Tepponen, something special about performing in the Kerimäki Church with the familiar Choir. “They’re professionals; I know what they can do. It’s tremendously inspiring.”
