Finnair has named internationally acclaimed violinist, Min Lee, as its new brand ambassador in Singapore. Finnair will launch scheduled flights between Singapore and Helsinki on 30 May 2011.

 Min Lee, a former child prodigy, started playing the violin at the age of two-and- half, has always felt a strong connection to Finland. At the age of 12, Min made her debut with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra at the Inaugural Presidential Concerts playing the violin concerto by Finnish composer Sibelius. She also fondly remembers performing at the Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival in Northern Finland as a child.

Hailed by international media as Singapores poster girl of classical music, Min Lee will perform with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of famous Finnish conductor Hannu Lintu on 29 April and at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Concert Hall on 30 April 2011. The performance will include a Violin Concerto by Sibelius, one of Min Lees favourite composers.

 Min Lees career is nothing short of extraordinary. Not only is she a much respected violinist who has helped enhance Singapores reputation as a major arts and cultural capital, but she also happens to be an outstanding individual who is much admired for her charity work. She has, to date, raised more than Sin$6.3 million for various charitable organizations in Singapore and around the world, said Finnair CEO, Mika Vehvilinen. We are proud to have Min Lee as our brand ambassador for Singapore. As an international artiste who travels widely around the world to perform and do her charitable work, she will be able to appreciate how important it is to arrive happy and in good shape at each destination. Now that she will be travelling on Finnair, she will be able to experience the Finnair difference.
