My name is Kaisa, and this is my first year with NSYO. I started my musical journey when I played piano at 5, went to clarinet at 11, and then switched to bassoon at 12. Since then, I have fallen in love with playing this amazing instrument. I’ve played in my high school concert band, jazz band, pit band, Acadia Youth Band, and Nova Scotia Youth Wind Ensemble. I am currently taking my Bachelor of Music with a focus in performance at Acadia. Although I have been playing in bands for longer than I’ve been playing bassoon, this is my first experience with an orchestra! I am super excited to be doing this! If I am not doing anything music related, you can find me crocheting or knitting on my couch, hitting the slopes with my snowboard, or backwoods camping.
