But October brought also some dark clouds over my family, when my dad left us, after a few weeks' illness. It was devastating and even when we had some weeks to prepare ourselves for the worst that could happen, it wasn't easy for any of us.
The funeral was held a few weeks later at the Honkanummi Chapel and the commemoration at my dad's house here in Helsinki. Our hearts are still heavy, but the life has to continue...Rest In Peace dad, you will be remembered !
Peter held master classes to our students, and we played a concert together at the Sirkkala Auditorium in Joensuu.
The students were pushed to their limits (and over!!) but the result was great!
