Kim Borg (1919 - 2000)

Born into a musical family, Kim Borg received his first singing lessons from his mother. He studied chemistry and voice, the latter with Heikki Teittinen at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki from 1936. Following the outbreak of World War II Borg served as a military photographer in the Finnish army between 1941 and 1945, photography being one of his hobbies. Returning to music in 1945, he continued his vocal training while also (until 1947) studying theory and composition in Helsinki with Leo Funtek and Aare Merikanto; in 1946 he was awarded a diploma in biochemistry by the Helsinki University of Technology. Borg made his concert debut in Helsinki during 1947, subsequently pursuing further vocal studies with Magnus Andersen in Copenhagen and Andrejewa de Skilondz in Stockholm. His operatic stage debut took place in 1951 as Colline / La bohème at Aarhus in Denmark. He was quickly taken up by the Royal Danish Opera in Copenhagen: following his debut there in 1952 as Prince Gremin / Eugene Onegin, Borg was engaged on a regular basis; he also sang regularly throughout his career with the Helsinki Opera.
