Bio



Petteri Loukio is a young and promising tenor. He began his singing in a Boys Choir in Tampere in 2000 and then in 2013 he began his studies to become a classical tenor. His abilities in the upper register are remarkable, because of lightness of the voice, accompanied with firm power.
His presence on stage, be it lied or opera is one of a kind. He is a believable performer and a very versatile one. His voice is suitable for many pieces of both operatic and musical literature.
Loukio’s repertoire includes basic operatic literature as well as many pieces of traditional lied and classical folk songs. In his freshman year (2013) he performed the role of Sellem the auctioneer in Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress. Since then he has portrayed Cecco in Haydn's Il Mondo Della Luna, been the understudy for Mastro Trabuco in Verdi's La Forza Del Destino at the Tampere Opera.

He commissioned a chamber music monologue opera, Dante’s Punchlines, which he then performed in his Bachelor’s Thesis in december 2017. In october 2017 he also covered and vocally performed the role of Niccolo Paganini in Franz Lehár’s operetta Paganini, due to the soloist losing his voice.In january 2018 he covered the role of Iisakki in Olli Kortekangas’ civil war oper Veljeni Vartija (My Brothers Keeper).
