Ingvar Hällerståhl

I was born 1953 in Kristianstad, (in the south of Sweden) and I now live in Stockholm,
From the year of 2006 I am not playing the Tuba as a professional,
Year 2005-2014 I worked at the Union, The Swedish Federation of professional Musicians, called SYMF as an economist and ombudsman. From 2015 I am plying the tuba a little bit more than during the almost 10 years with SYMF.
