Tine Thing Helseth, 28, started to play the trumpet at the age of 7, and is one of today’s leading trumpet soloists.

Tine’s vibrant schedule continues into the 15/16 season, with performances with the Belgrade and Helsinki Philharmonic orchestras, NDR Radio Philharmonic Hanover and the Dresdner Kapellsolisten. She will be Artist in Residence at the Bodensee Festival, and will curate Manchester Camerata’s UpClose series.
In addition to her concert appearances, Tine also curates her own festival, Tine@Munch, which was launched in June 2013 in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the birth of fellow Norwegian, Edvard Munch. A three day event in Oslo’s Edvard Munch Museum, the festival featured performances from such instrumentalists as Leif Ove Andsnes, Nicola Benedetti and Truls Mork. In the 14/15 season, Tine also curated her first music series for the Leeds International Concert Season, featuring performances by guest artists and programmes inspired by Norwegian themes.
