New HKO Screen Guest concerts

Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra’s HKO Screen service presents new content every week – including also guest concerts 


The Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra plans to publish new HKO Screen online concerts each week throughout the spring. Musicians from the orchestra will perform Impromptu chamber music concerts without a live audience in the Concert Hall of the Helsinki Music Centre every other Friday: on 17 April, 15 May and 29 May at 7pm. The orchestra’s traditional May Day Matinee will be held on Friday 1 May at 2pm. All of these concerts can be watched on the orchestra’s website, on the HKO Screen mobile app and on Yle Areena. The concerts can also be listened to on Yle Radio 1.  

In addition to its live streams, the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra is also publishing concert recordings from previous seasons on its channels. This archive material will be published on alternating Fridays with the chamber music concerts.  


New HKO Screen Guest concerts 

Throughout the spring, the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra will also feature guest concerts on its online channels. The orchestra’s first guest concert was Classical Hietsu, whose first online concert was published last Sunday on YouTube. Performed at the Hietsu Pavillion next to the popular Hiekkaranta Beach, the concert will also be published this Tuesday on the HKO Screen mobile app and the orchestra’s website. The first HKO Screen Guest concert presents violinist Eriikka Maalismaa, pianists Emil Holmström, Mirka Viitala and Maija Väisänen, and guitarist Petri Kumela. The concerts video and sound recordings were made by Anders Pohjola. 

The orchestra plans to publish HKO Screen Guest concerts every other Tuesday this spring. The Classical Hietsu concert will be followed e.g. by a concert by musicians from the UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra. These guest concerts can be watched on the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra’s website and mobile app for as long as the restrictions on public events remain in place.
