Pekka Kuusisto, a violinist and conductor, says he is eagerly anticipating the shows that will begin in January.

Jaakko Kuusiston distinguished himself as a supplement to the symphony as a violinist, conductor, and brother who passed away this year. Pekka Kuusisto will be absent from work for the remainder of the year due to illness. This year, Kuusisto also lost his mother to a severe illness.

In his Facebook post, Kuusisto is honest about his sick leave. He says that according to his doctor acquaintance, artists and actresses are typically the last to request sick time. Even though there were other intriguing projects scheduled for the remainder of the year, he had been waiting for this moment for a while, and here was it.

“Over the coming weeks, I’ll unwind, take in the beauty, and find a way home. I still think of my job as a tremendous blessing and am forward to start working again in January.
