Abstract: Finland, a Scandinavian country with a population of 5 million, is a promised land of choirs, singers, composers, conductors, symphony orchestras, lakes, and rally drivers. There are approximately 20,000 professional musicians and preprofessional music students in Finland. Additionally, hundreds of thousands of Finnish amateur musicians sing and play their instruments with love and passion, often at a very high level. There is no doubt of the need for professional medical care for musicians in Finland, as elsewhere.
