CULTURE COMPANIONS

In addition to the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, the City of Helsinki’s culture companions work together with over a dozen other partners.

Would you like to attend a concert by the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra but find it difficult getting there or do not want to go alone? Then invite a culture companion to accompany you! Your culture companion will also book the tickets and assist or guide you to the venue, if necessary. The concert is free of charge for you when accompanied by a culture companion, and the services of your culture companion are also complimentary.

To request a culture companion: 1. Call (09) 310 58237 (Mon-Thu 10–13) or leave a message on the www.kulttuurikaveri.fi website. 2. Specify the concert you would like to attend or request a proposal. 3. Your culture companion will book the tickets and contact you to arrange the time and place you would like to meet. Enjoy the concert!

In addition to the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, the City of Helsinki’s culture companions work together with over twenty other partners. Further information: info.kulttuurikaveri@hel.fi
