Tine Thing Helseth (TEE-nə-ting-HEL-sət)

tine_2When listing the talented trumpet players of today, no list would be complete without the name Tine Thing Helseth. Her entrance to the musical stage was quiet and as tasteful as her playing. Not only is she an exceptionally talented young lady which you will hear in this video, but on a scale from p to ff, she is definitely a fortissimo in the range of beauty.
