Opera star notifies neighbours she’s about to resume practicing

Karita Mattila has gone viral after passers-by photographed a note on her self-isolated door reading (in Finnish):

Dear neighbours, I am temporarily living on the 7th floor, apartment 30. I will begin practising my singing on the coming Friday. My aim is to practise daily for around 2 hours between the hours 14-18.
My apologies in advance for the extra noise caused.
Kind regards,
Karita Mattila

‘Noise?’ tweeted one of the neighbours. ‘We’re grateful for the free concert.’
