Tine Thing Helseth
Tine has worked with some of the world's leading orchestras and chamber orchestras, such as Bamberger Symphoniker, NDR Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, SWR Symphonieorchester Stuttgart, Tonkünstler-Orchester Vienna, BBC Philharmonic, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Oslo Philharmonic, Mozarteum Salzburg and Munich Chamber.
Her recent highlights include a concert tour to Germany and Austria with Andrew Manze and the NDR Radiophilharmonie Hanover, concerts with Vasily Petrenko and the Rundfunk-Symphonieorchester Berlin, Lahav Shani and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Kirill Karabits and the Bournemouth Symphony, as well as an artist residency with the Bodenseefestival at Lake Constance. The 2016/2017 season also marked Tine's debut on natural trumpet.
Tine also continues embarking on regular tours with her ten-piece, all-female brass ensemble, tenThing. An idea that started in 2007 as a fun and exciting project to pursue with her closest musical friends, the group have gone on to play to numerous European and American audiences.
Tine has been the recipient of various awards for her work in classical music, including “Newcomer of the Year” at the 2013 Echo Klassik Awards, the 2009 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship, and second prize in the 2006 Eurovision Young Musicians Competition, to which Tine returned to serve as juror for the 2016 competition. In 2007, Tine had the rare honour of being the first ever classical artist to be nominated for a Norwegian Grammy Award.
In 2012, Tine recorded Storyteller with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, released on the EMI Classics label. Tine released a further, self-titled CD in March 2013, presenting a personal selection of original and transcribed works, accompanied by pianist Kathryn Stott.
