Tuuli Takala has won the Timo Mustakallio singing competition in Savonlinna, Finland!
Once again the distinguished Timo Mustakallio singing competition was held in Savonlinna, Finland in July 2013.
16 young singers competed in the first round, from which 8 were chosen to perform in the finals in the Olavinlinna Castle.
The competition was of very high standard which made the decision of the esteemed jury (Jari Hämäläinen, Monica Groop, Jorma Silvasti and Jaakko Ryhänen) not an easy call.
Tuuli was awarded First Prize (the Timo Mustakallio scholarship) and the scholarship of the Eero Rantala Fund of the Finnish Cultural Foundation went to mezzosoprano Pihla Terttunen.
