We pride ourselves on a policy of openness and approachability. At the Music Centre you can hear and see a variety of concerts and performances, drop in for a snack in the café on your way through, take a look around in the lobby or the exhibition spaces, enjoy a delicious meal in the restaurant, or pop in the shop or stop off at the Sibelius Academy Library to browse music books, magazines, and databases or listen to a wide range of recordings.
We are a venue for all types of music and art. We offer a pioneering range of events, promoting Helsinki as an attractive resort for both domestic and international visitors.
The Music Centre is the home for two eminent orchestras, the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra and the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, and the one and only music university in Finland, the Sibelius Academy. Because these entities support each other, they are able to provide a wealth of inspiration to all sectors of art.
We are a venue of rendezvous. Newcomers and old hands, learners and professionals, all types of music, passers-by, tourists, and music enthusiasts will come together in our concert halls and other spaces.
Our extensive programme welcomes all music lovers to explore and learn about music in workshops, seminars, and at other events.
Welcome to the Helsinki Music Centre!
