Are you interested in classical music but need a little help to increase your listening experience? Join us on a musical journey!

“Learn how to listen to classical music!” is an informative lecture given by conductor Satu Simola that introduces you to the music being performed in the evening’s concert. The idea behind the lecture series is to encourage an individual appreciation of classical music.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I take photos of the orchestra?

Yes, but only before or after the concert. During the concert we just want you to enjoy the music. This way you won’t disturb the musicians or other audience members.

Simply call 020 762 4862, send an e-mail to ravintolat.musiikkitalo@restel.fi​ or the Restis app. Interval refreshments for groups of 30 or more should be ordered from the sales service.

Do I have to dress up to attend a concert?

Only the orchestra has a dress code. You can dress as you like.

I have a season ticket but can’t make it to the concert – what should I do?

You can give the ticket to a friend or donate it to a music student by calling 09-3102 2700 or sending an e-mail to helsinki.philharmonic@hel.fi by 3pm on the day of the concert.

More musical energy

Spend an evening in the echo chambers on the dark side of the human mind. In the King Lear Overture of Hector Berlioz, a composer who worshipped Shakespeare, the orchestra’s violas, cellos and basses come together and recite the thoughts of the mad old king. The forbidden doors of Duke Bluebeard’s gloomy castle are opened in the concert version of Bartók’s opera by mezzo-soprano Szilvia Vörös from the Vienna State Opera, who is joined by bass Mika Kares, who has performed leading roles in opera houses around the world.
