The Pori Musical Society established an orchestra in Pori, on the west coast of Finland, as early as 1877. This amateur ensemble performed principally light music and dances; classical music started to appear on the programmes in 1902. The Pori City Orchestra, nowadays known as the Pori Sinfonietta, was established in 1938 when the amateur orchestra and Pori Orchestral Society joined forces. By the late 1970s all of the players (28) were professional musicians. The Pori Sinfonietta gives symphony, chamber and church concerts as well as performing light music and children’s concerts; it also plays at opera productions in Pori and Vaasa. The orchestra has also appeared in Sweden and Hungary, and its principal conductors have included Juhani Numminen, Hannu Koivula, Juhani Lamminmäki and Ari Rasilainen.
