Jaakko Kortekangas has pursued a career as a stage artist for 35 years. He has performed in many countries in Europe, and in New York, Tokyo and many other cities. He was with the Freiburg Opera in Germany for 10 years. He has given the first performances of works of many Finnish composers and sings opera as well as Lied.

His numerous recordings include the disc of songs by Erkki Melartin entitled 'Nuori Psyyke' ('Young Psyche') with pianist Ilkka Paananen, and Robert Schumann's Scenes from Goethe's Faust with the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra. During the current season 2017–18 Kortekangas will be performing in Verdi's La Traviata and Puccini's Madama Butterfly.
