Teekkaritorvet wind band was founded by Oulu University tech students in 1970. Nowadays we have a joyously multidisciplinary line-up of woodwind, brass and percussion players from freshmen to PhD’s. Our impressive repertoire ranges from Finnish dance music to pop classics and march music to jazz. We also play funk, disco, rock and racy swing. This makes us a popular entertainment number with 30-50 gigs every year. You might spot us at various public and private functions, such as university and student festivities, graduation parties, opening ceremonies, weddings and anniversaries.

Teekkaritorvet are especially famous for their spectacular Wappu performances in Linnansaari and Rotuaari around May 1st. In addition to Wappu, 2015 features both Puhallus [linkki] and the 45th anniversary of Teekkaritorvet. Puhallus, a meeting for Finnish student wind bands, will take place in Helsinki, with over 200 players gathering there for one weekend next autumn. Teekkaritorvet anniversary will be celebrated with several concerts throughout the year, culminating in a grand anniversary concert and festivities in November.

You can check out our Facebook page for pictures and videos from our gigs, or listen to our album Särkevää from 2007. Rumour has it that Teekkaritorvet also appears on Youtube, but we take no responsibility over that material.

Teekkaritorvet welcomes new players all around the year, whatever their education, job or nationality is. During the past few years we have had exchange students from the Czech Republic, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, France, the Netherlands and Japan, and more are welcome!
