Introduction

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.
 
This spring’s other lectures will take place in the Terrace Foyer at the Helsinki Music Centre on 16/01, 23/04 and 06/05.
 

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.

How can I order interval refreshments?

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 want to change my seat – what should I do?

If you would like to change your seat, you can purchase a new season ticket from the seats available when they go on sale. Unclaimed seats will be made available for individual concerts when the sales period for season tickets ends.

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.
